Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is the best-selling plug-in hybrid in UK in Sept


The Mitsubishi Outlander plug-in hybrid (PHEV) has consistently topped the PHEV sales chart in the UK and last month (September), Mitsubishi Motors sold 1,325 units of the electrified seven-seater SUV.

Overall, the Outlander PHEV accounts for 28 per cent of all plug-in hybrid sold for the month of September in the UK. Year-to-date, the company has delivered more than 5,731 units of the family SUV to UK customers which equates to 17 per cent of the total PHEV market.

The Outlander PHEV was recently updated for MY2019, featuring a more powerful and efficient plug-in hybrid powertrain, larger battery pack, revised suspension set up for better comfort and stability, larger front brake discs as well as recalibrated Super All-Wheel Control all-wheel-drive and traction control system.

Elsewhere the Outlander PHEV also gains restyled LED headlamps, bumpers, comfort seats, rear air vents and a new interior accent trim. Managing Director of Mitsubishi Motors in the UK, Rob Lindley said: “The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV continues to perform well, and the 2019 revisions only broaden the appeal of such a versatile and capable vehicle. We were one of the first to announce WLTP figures for PHEV, and this has allowed us to be in a position to continue selling vehicles in such an important market.”

Closer to home, Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia (MMM) offers two variants of the Outlander – 2.0L and 2.4L – and more recently introduced a limited Outlander Sports Edition 2.0L 4WD.
