MITSUBISHI OUTLANDER ACCOUNTS FOR ONE IN EVERY FOUR PHEVS REGISTERED IN AUGUST

The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV remained the UK’s best-selling plug-in hybrid vehicle in August 2019, with one in every four plug-in hybrid vehicles registered being a Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV.

Calendar year to date, sales of the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV total 4,428 units, which is broadly in line with last year with 4,521 units registered. This sales performance has been achieved in spite of the withdrawal of the plug-in car grant in November 2018.

The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV continues to dominate the market with a commanding 24.7% share of the Plug-in hybrid vehicle sector with sales more than double than that of its nearest rival.

Rob Lindley, Managing Director, Mitsubishi Motors in the UK said, “The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV has cemented its position as the nation’s favourite plug-in vehicle, one it has held consistently since the vehicles initial launch back in 2014. Our customers continue to enjoy the real-world benefits of plug-in technology, with the flexibility of a full-size family SUV and no compromises in term of boot or passenger space.”

The 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is priced from £35,455 (OTR) and until September 26th customers can get an additional £2,000 trade-in allowance when they trade in their current car for a new Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV at their local, participating Mitsubishi dealership.
