Verdict

The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV and the Caravan as an example of a laden weight of 1500 kg is a good combination for journeys on most kinds of roads, sometimes with some limitations in the mountains.

Weight

The chance of snaking is relatively small at normal speed, if the caravan is well loaded.

Flat roads

The performances of the engine of this outfit are in general good. Under all conditions on motorways it is possible to drive with 60 mph in the 8th gear. In that case the engine runs approximately 3000 rpm. In a headwind or for example on a crossover there is no need to downshift immediately.

Mountains

On most motorways inclines (1:20) driving is easily possible in the 7th gear with 50 mph and even full throttle with 57 mph. In the 6th gear the top speed is 70 mph (5186 rpm). Hill starts are possible on steep slopes up to 19%. While driving the engine has enough power on slopes of 16% to drive.

Attention: This car can easily drive much faster with the caravan than is safe. So always keep an eye on your speed!
