The Outlander PHEV uses Mitsubishi's own Plug-in Hybrid powertrain derived from 100% electric systems used on the i-MiEV.

The Outlander PHEV is "the world's first plug-in hybrid SUV" (though the Toyota RAV4 EV is also plug-in, though 100% electric and not a hybrid), and brings together the "environmental performance and quietness that distinguish EVs while delivering the utility and on- and off-road performance associated with 4WD sport utility vehicles and the cruising range of a conventional ICE-powered vehicle."
