Under the bonnet is a 2.0-litre petrol engine, fuelled by a 45-litre tank. An oft-taken route for 4wd hybrids is to use the engine to power the front wheels and an electric motor for the rears, but the Outlander has two electric motors, one to drive each axle. They generate around 80bhp apiece, although the rear one enjoys a little bit more torque because it has to power the rear wheels on its tod. The batteries are centrally mounted between the two axles, protecting them from crash damage and, usefully, avoiding them pinching any of the 436-litre boot space. PHEV, of course, stands for 'Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle' and the Outlander’s partial electrification means it’s allowed to declare improbably low CO2 emissions of 44g/km, which in turn mean a lower-than-low tax band.
