Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV and Dealers

    We need to order a new car (current one has already been extended) and are looking at the Outlander PHEV Dynamic providing we like the test drive. Has anyone gone from a BMW X1 (diesel) to one, how did you find it?

    The nearest dealers to us are Hemel Hempstead, Edgware and Maidenhead. We could also visit Norwich as we’re up that way a lot. Has anyone used these, had a good or bad experience?

    From what I have found I won’t get any discount on the AP and they don’t do add-ons. So I’m just looking for a dealer who has a good Motability department.

    Also, I know a wall charger is best but has anyone used just the granny charger via an outside socket without any problems? I’ll be getting one connected to the fusebox and not spurred off an existing socket.

    Although I haven’t bought from Mitsubishi in Hemel, the Motability salesperson I met with initially was quite friendly and showed me around the Mirage. I was expecting him to leave me alone but he stood by, keenly asking me what I thought of the car. Hoping that he would leave me, I told him I wanted to see the ASX alone but he was still in the background asking me questions. I left almost immediately without making any further queries and feeling very uncomfortable.

    2017 Toyota CH-R 1.2T Dynamic CVT AWD - written off
    2019 BMW X2 2.0L Sport

    I pick my outlander up on the 11th.  2 weeks after ordering! Stocks are depleting fast. And you have to choose what’s available. Colours in the Dynamic ate now white, metallic white or Atlantic grey for no charge or the red for £270 I believe. Especially with the new lower AP. The motability specialist filled out all the forms knew lots about the scheme and was helpful but not in my face.

     

    I’ve not had an x1 but I have had a 3 series an a3 and a Merc c220 and the outlander wipes the floor with them technology and comfort wise.

    You will be ok with a granny charger, there are many thousand of Outlander PHEV owners who only use the granny charger, we use our occasionally when charging up at caravan sites or the daughters. It takes about 5 1/2 hours to charge up using the granny charger, the PHEV has a built in charging timer so you can set the charging to be off peak, Octopus Energy Go charge 5 pence kWh or Go+ for 6 pence kWh.

    All Mitsubishi Outlanders have been UK stock vehicles for over a year, you cannot order any factory fitted extras, only dealer fitted extras.

    Thanks all.

    Hemel no longer have a Motability specialist so can’t order a car through them. They don’t have a Dynamic we can look at anyway.

    Been trying to contact Maidenhead to arrange a test drive without much luck.

    There is Duxford but that’s an hour away. We might not have much choice though. We’ll be in Norwich in 3 weeks time (we actually pass the Duxford one on the way) but I think that might be too late.

    It’s a shame you can’t phone up and order one!

    After trying a couple of others we seem to be getting somewhere with Mitsubishi Guildford. They get great reviews for the Motability team too.

    They phoned up and said they won’t have a car we can look at until the end of the week and we can pop down for a look.

    He did say they are going fast so if it looks like there aren’t many left he’ll let us know. They also only have red left so another £270 on top. Would’ve preferred white or grey.

    On the plus side it seems the good condition payment has increased from £250 when we got the X1 to £600, which we didn’t know about. So that’ll offset some of the cost.

    Pick mine up this morning. Will post photos. Am quite excited as this will make a huge difference to me. Am very much looking forward to getting as much electric driving out of it that I can whilst still having the comfort of a petrol back up for longer journeys.

    At only £500 more on ap have you considered a dynamic safety? They might have the free colours left and at an effective £230 (after you consider the 270 paint on the dynamic) might be worth all the extra video and adaptive cruise control you get. The drive and the basics of the car won’t be any different to the dynamic you try at Guildford. Good luck.

    When you pick it up and drive it home it will feel very strange, you will be expecting some engine noise, but no just pure silence, have fun.
