The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV has achieved 50,000 sales in the UK since its launch six years ago on 1 April 2014.
The Outlander PHEV achieved 10,000 registrations within the first ten months and helped the plug-in hybrid market to grow by a factor of ten in the process.
The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is also the most popular plug-in hybrid vehicle in the UK, in Europe, and in the world.
The Outlander PHEV has been revised twice since launch to refresh its styling and enhance its specification and performance. The latest-generation all-wheel drive Outlander PHEV is fitted with Mitsubishi’s latest 2.4-litre, Atkinson-cycle petrol engine and a more powerful, higher-capacity EV powertrain to help it achieve WLTP CO2 emissions of just 46g/km and a 28-mile EV range. With the average daily commute in England and Wales less than 10 miles each way, that makes it possible for most owners to drive to and from work without ever using a drop of petrol in the process.
In fact a survey of Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV customers revealed that 90% charge regularly, 68% charge daily and overall more than half the average daily mileage is driven in Electric Vehicle mode, reducing fuel use, lowering emissions and improving air quality in urban areas where conventional internal-combustion engines are at their least efficient.
The Outlander PHEV also features all-wheel drive thanks to an electric motor on each axle.
