What is PHEV World?
PHEV World opened in December 2015 as a touring facility for visitors.
The attractions include a small planetarium, a VR experience that uses the Outlander PHEV, an information transmission touch panel, and a drink counter.
Chargers are available all day and night in the visitor parking lot, and regular chargers can be used free of charge.

This small planetarium is approximately 6 meters in diameter and is inspired by a Mongolian dwelling called a "ger.” Here, visitors can enjoy beautiful spherical screenings. Through this facility, Mitsubishi Motors, the developer of environment-friendly Outlander PHEV, has established this facility wishing ”The night sky in 100 years will be as beautiful as today's”.
