Mitsubishi Outlander Phev – Still the UK’s Favourite Plug-In Vehicle

Once again, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is the UK’s best-selling plug-in vehicle. Sales of Mitsubishi Motors’ petrol/electric plug-in hybrid SUV totalled 476 units in April and 2,695 units for the period January to April 2018, ahead of every other pure EV and plug-in hybrid on the market.

The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV was the first plug-in car to gain widespread approval from UK drivers when it launched in 2014, taking the plug-in hybrid market from fewer than 1,500 units to more than 13,000 within a year. Since then it has consistently been the most popular plug-in electrified vehicle in the UK with more than 36,800 currently on the road today.

The popularity of the Outlander PHEV has contributed to Mitsubishi Motors’ widespread success in the automotive industry. While car registrations in the UK from January to April 2018 were down 8.8%, Mitsubishi Motors’ sales were up an impressive 12.1%, with the successful launch of the all new Eclipse Cross also contributing to the brand’s growth.

Rob Lindley, Managing Director of Mitsubishi Motors in the UK, said “Despite ever more competition entering the market, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV continues to win more and more customers over thanks to its no-compromise, SUV versatility and low real-world running costs. With more excellent new SUV models joining the range, such as the Eclipse Cross and Shogun Sport, we have ambitions to grow the Mitsubishi brand even further in 2018 and beyond.”

The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV has benefits such as low running costs, low car tax and exemption from the London congestion charge and first year road tax. It remains one of the only electrified vehicles that can operate in 4WD using only electric power, thanks to the twin electric-motor system and Mitsubishi’s S-AWC (Super-All Wheel Control).

Available from just £32,305 OTR* the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is capable of 166.1 MPG (according to official NEDC fuel economy figures) with an electric range of up to 33 miles. It can be rapid-charged in 25 minutes and can be fully charged from a domestic home charge point in 3.5 hours.
