Hello Everyone - Have been a guest on here for awhile, decided to join as I just purchased a new Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV in the US (New England area). In my trip of 93 miles between gas stations near the dealer and near my home, I averaged 35mpg. This was mostly highway driving but did include a 10 mile section of 10-20mph driving due to an accident. I had the battery save mode pressed which does not use the electric assist at all (saves it for later). I also had the Eco button pressed. The only thing I can think of as to why the EPA rating is only 25mpg combined (think I saw somewhere that the highway rating was only 26mpg) is that they decided that lead-footed Americans would never use the Eco switch, so they didn't test it that way. Think I saw a comment on here awhile ago that said that the Outlander PHEV had the lowest electric only miles (EPA 22 miles) of the currently available US plug-ins. I don't believe that's true, especially for AWD SUVs that are tow rated. For instance, the BMW X5 xdrive 40 e is rated at 14 miles, the Mercedes GLE 20 miles and the Volvo XC90 at 19 miles. They also all cost at least $15,000. more. Some things I like are: The adjustable regenerative braking. On the way home from the gas station I used electric drive with the highest regen setting and think it may have potential for one pedal driving. The heated steering wheel - definitely is appreciated by seniors like myself with less than robust circulation which leads to cold hands a lot. In EV mode, you can accelerate at a respectable rate without having the gas engine come on. (We also have a Gen 1 Prius plug-in and you have to accelerate quite slowly to keep the gas engine off on that). The charging port door locks when the car is locked. (The one on the Prius doesn't). The only thing I've noticed that I like better on the Prius is that the charging indicator light is at the charging port, whereas on the Outlander it's on the dash. I will post more at some point when I've had more experience with the Outlander.
