25,000 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEVs sold in the UK

Time 9:35 am, October 14, 2016

SALES of the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV have topped the 25,000 mark in the UK.

When the Outlander PHEV was launched in May 2014, just 2,770 plug-in hybrids had been registered for use on UK roads but by the end of that year, the total had risen to just over 10,000 vehicles.

The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV accounted for 5,354 registrations – around half.

By the end of 2015, a total of 13 plug-in hybrid models had entered the market, bringing total segment registrations to 19,000 vehicles, yet despite the increased competition the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV continued to resonate with customers.

Of those 19,000 vehicles, 11,681 were Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV registrations, accounting for 61 per cent of the burgeoning segment.

So far in 2016 Mitsubishi Motors in the UK continues to lead the field, with almost 7,800 Outlander PHEV registrations in the first three quarters of the year.

Lance Bradley, Managing Director Mitsubishi Motors in the UK, said: ‘We’re extremely proud of the role the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV has played in building awareness and acceptance of electrically-powered vehicles in the UK.

‘We are confident of maintaining our market-leading position well into the future.’
