The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV 4Work has scooped the What Van? Green Award for 2017 at a recent award ceremony in London. Based on the UK’s best-selling plug-in hybrid vehicle, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV 4Work offers the same style, comfort and equipment and technology as the passenger version, but offers a load volume of 1,603-litres and a payload of 495kg. There’s also easy access to the flat load area via the rear tailgate and rear side doors.
Unlike diesel and petrol-powered vans, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Commercial is at its most efficient and environmentally-friendly in urban areas thanks to its electric range of up to 32 miles, but for longer journeys or when a rapid charger isn’t available the 2.0-litre petrol engine offers an impressive maximum range of 541 miles.
It’s also extremely capable in the toughest of weather conditions with on demand all-wheel drive and S-AWS (Super All-Wheel Control) to assist the driver while cornering in low-grip situations, along with the added security of M-ASTC (Mitsubishi Active Stability and Traction Control).
Speaking about the Outlander PHEV 4WORK, Editor of What Van? James Dallas, said: “The Outlander PHEV 4Work remains the best solution for environmentally-conscious operators who require more range than an electric van can offer. It rides and handles well on road and offers operators the capability of venturing off the beaten track.”
Lance Bradley, Managing Director of Mitsubishi Motors in the UK, said, “Whatever segment the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV competes in, it’s a winner. We’re delighted that the What Van? Editorial team appreciates the environmental and commercial benefits of the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Commercial and has seen fit to bestow the vehicle with its prestigious Green Award for 2017.”
