Mitsubishi has updated their Eclipse Cross PHEV for 2023 and added a 1500W vehicle to load capability for their Aspire and Exceed models.
This is accessed via a three-pin 240-volt power outlet and owners can power a range of domestic, office, industrial and leisure appliances via the Eclipse Cross PHEV’s drive battery.
The outlet is placed in the rear luggage compartment.
The ability to utilise the battery power in electric cars is becoming a more important feature and is now found in a few electric cars.
PHEV offer the ability to do most if not all of localised daily driving on the battery, with zero local driving emissions, while allowing longer trips to be taken woth zero range anxiety.
The Mitsubishi Eclipse PHEV has an estimated electric only range of 55km as well as reasonable economy when not in fully electric mode.
Pricing for the 2023 models is from $47,290 through to $55,990 plus the usual costs and they are arriving in March this year.
