MITSUBISHI has sold 100,000 Outlander PHEVs since the car’s launch in 2012 – with the UK rapidly becoming the leading market in the world for the manufacturer’s plug-ins.
Lance Bradley, managing director of Mitsubishi Motors UK, said: ‘To reach this milestone is a fantastic achievement, which really underlines Outlander PHEV’s global appeal. Consumers in the UK have overwhelmingly made it their preferred choice for ultra-low emission motoring too. It is by far the nation’s leading plug-in vehicle.’
The UK is a hugely successful market for the Outlander PHEV. It now accounts for over 20 per cent of the vehicle’s global sales. In fact, such has been UK consumer demand and Government push for environmental transport solutions, one in every two cars now sold by Mitsubishi Motors UK is a plug-in. The Outlander PHEV has a total hybrid range of 541 miles and a 32-mile zero-emission range using battery power alone.
As well as its official fuel consumption figure of 156 miles per gallon, the Outlander PHEV’s low emissions of just 42g of CO2 per kilometre mean there’s no road tax to pay. It is exempt from the congestion charge and qualifies for the Government’s £2,500 plug-in car grant.
