It is not possible to charge an electric vehicle from the systems on your PHEV.

At the moment the only way to charge an electric vehicle other than by using mains electric is to use a power pack unit which has been special designed to cope with the needs of the EV.

The AA are at the moment investing in these units to aid EV owners who have broken down due to lack of charge, but they are rare at the moment.

Unfortunately due to the power requirements of the EV an inverter from your PHEV would not be suitable and could damage the systems on your Mitsubishi.

I hope this answers your question but I want you to be 100% happy with the answer so do please feel free to ask any further details by replying to this thread.
