    I was at a Mitsubishi dealer yesterday and he said that they have loads pre-built and can have you on the road in 14 days.  This includes the PHEV.

    Thank you pillboy. The Outlander is on my list of possibles for change later this year. So if they still have stock then, I’ll know they’re not shifting. 😂

    🏎 I will be remembered for nothing but had great fun doing it 🏎

    It’s probably because it’s not a totally new model, but just a facelift with some improvements.

    I’ve booked a test drive in the PHEV this Sunday. Can’t change until May so will be able to place order 2nd week of Feb. I’ll enquire about stock levels as I don’t necessarily want a car that’s been sitting around at the dock yard for months.

    I was looking at them 3 years ago too – even then the dealer said they had “every colour” available on about a 10 day delivery.

    It’s possibly just the way Mitsubishi choose to operate – given the single engine / transmission choice and relatively small choice of colours, they have quite a small number of permutations hence not hugely costly to maintain a float stock in the UK. Unlike, for example, BMW where the permutations of a given model are endless.

    I cant change until near the end of May, I had a look yesterday, we fancy a pearl white design, we were told if you want to add parking sensor it is around £350, the posh metallic red about £240.

    I have done some research on EC charging points, the Chargemaster have some bad reviews plus it is only 16amp, Podpoint have some very good reviews a 32 amp is £279.

    I going to take attest drive in march, tell us how you get on.

    Before you spend anything extra on a bigger charger, it’s worth checking what the car can actually take.  This is a quick reply from memory as I did look at the Outlander before ordering a Tiguan, but I seem to remember that it doesn’t benefit from high capacity chargers much. The charge time doesn’t decrease after a certain level of potential input

    EDIT:
    Pretty sure there is no difference when connecting it to a 7 or 22 kw charger, both take around 3 1/2 hours for a 0-100% charge. There is a benefit over a 3kw charger as that’s around 5 hours but by a logic based guesstimate based on the above, anything over about 5kw won’t actually improve the time it takes to charge

    Colin,

    The Outlander home charging is limit to 16 amp so as you say using a 32 amp charger will not charge it any quicker, however there is only £50 difference, if at a later date you charge to a EV or upcoming PHEV’S it will save you upgrading your charger.

    Yes, the Outlander comes in two specs; Design, which is fairly basic and Exceed, which is top of the line.  So easy to keep a few weeks stock. They told me that accessories are fitted at the dealership.

    I had my test drive today – dealer let me pick it up in morning and return late afternoon. It was a MY19 4H model, not the MY20 Design currently available, so a few differences in spec (leather, electric tailgate, heated windscreen, etc) but nothing that bothers me. In fact, the electric tailgate is the slowest I’ve ever come across – so am pleased that it isn’t even an option.

    Overall impressions were very good. The battery was more or less empty when I got it, so did all my driving on combination of engine and whatever charge the battery accumulated along the way. This included a stint on the motorway of running it in “charge” mode which got the battery charged up to 75% at one point. Overall I averaged 37.5mpg – this included motorway, dual carriage way and A roads.

    It is obviously quite a large vehicle, so handling and general feel completely different to current car.

    Given my normal daily driving distance and the fact I have off-road parking, it is more or less a no-brainer that this will work for me.

    Android Auto (paired to my Samsung J3) worked very well for Sat Nav – it was very easy to ask for directions to “xx xx xx” (post code or street name) and the Voice Control button on the steering wheel integrates well with it.

    It’s a thumbs up from me.

    I have a golf estate at the moment. Outlander bigger in all respects so no worries with space.

    I drive a Ford Kuga so quite similar size, heated front seats and windscreen are standard on all PHEV models, I am getting quite excited last year I was so disappointed when the AP shoot up out of my reach.

    My lease runs out on the 30th May 2020

    I don’t think the Design PHEV trim comes with a heated steering wheel – that is reserved for the top spec which isn’t available on Motability at the moment.

    No not heated steering wheel, heated windscreen standard.

    I don’t think the heated screen is standard on lower models. If you look at the Mitsubishi approved used car listings there are a few my2020 Design spec PHEVs there and they are all missing the button for the heated screen.

    Hi Roly,

    Got the new brochure, heated windscreen standard.

    I hope you are right, as it is a great feature to have. However the heated screen is not featured in the specification table of the my2020 PHEV brochure I have got (printed September 2019), nor is the control button (lower centre dash) present on the my2020 Design spec cars I have seen.

    Let’s hope I’m wrong.

    Dare I say that dealers often are not 100% in their knowledge. There were a number of errors in what the salesman told me yesterday. The Mitsubishi website is also contradictory in several places – for example it suggests that all models have full LED headlights – which they do not.

    Fingers crossed you are right, but I’ve seen nothing to convince me yet.

    I have just received an email back from the salesman heated windscreen is an optional extra?

    Is it me, but I am getting the feeling just lately dealership have little or no interest in Motability customer, I looked at Kia, totally ignored, Local VW half hearted, local Mitsubishi dealer one salesman interest, but the Motability salesman again less than interested. I never used to be like this.

    The only who showed any enthusiasm was the local Toyota dealership, unfortunately Motability dropped the RAV4.

    It certainly is a little loose with some of the specification details.

    I would challenge them on that – according to the 20MY brochure, no such optional extra exists. In fact there are no factory fit optional extras – only dealer fit stuff like parking sensors and trim enhancements.
