Mitsubishi Outlander remains UK’s best-selling plug-in

The plug-in hybrid SUV continues to be a success and sales of the large models are on the rise.

With 2,695 units sold from the start of the year, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV continues to be the best-selling plug-in hybrid model on the market.

The Outlander PHEV has been sold more than 36,800 times since it was brought to the market in 2014, making it the most popular electrified vehicle on sale in that period.

Capable of going 33 miles solely on electric power – with the battery able to be rapid charged in just 25 minutes – the model can return up to a quoted 166mpg and as little as 41g/km CO2.

The combination of the four-cylinder 2.0-litre petrol engine and the electric setup total 200bhp, which leads to a 0-60mph time of 10.8 seconds and a top speed of 106mph.

The Outlander PHEV is one of the few vehicles on sale that can use all-electric power on its four-wheel drive system and has three driving modes to utilise hybrid setup efficiently.

Rob Lindley, Mitsubishi Motors UK managing director, 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.”

Following the government’s plug-in car grant, the Outlander PHEV range starts from £32,305.
