The maximum payload for the Outlander PHEV Commercial is 510 kg.

There’s an electric motor on each axle so it will remain an all-wheel drive offering all times in electric mode.

The commercial vehicle has 18-inch alloy wheels, heated seats and windscreen, reversing camera and an electronic parking brake.

Touchscreen infotainment system

There’s also a touchscreen infotainment system featuring Android Auto and Apple CarPlay with DAB radio and Bluetooth connectivity.
