Sales of the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV have surpassed the 25,000 mark in the UK, accounting for approximately half of the total number of plug-in hybrids registered in the UK since the very first of such vehicles were registered in 2010.
When the PHEV was launch in May 2014 a total of just 2,770 plug-in hybrids were on UK roads. However, by the end of 2014, that total had risen to just over 10,000 vehicles, with the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV accounting for 5,354 of those.
By the end of 2015 a total of 13 plug-in hybrid models had entered the market, bringing total segment registrations to 19,000. Despite this increase in competition the Outlander PHEV continued to be successful with many customers choosing it for not only its economical figures but also its practically and cost. Of those 19,000 vehicles and astounding 11,681 were Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV’s. So far in 2016 Mitsubishi Motors in the UK continues to lead the field, with almost 7,800 Outlander PHEV registrations in the first three quarters of the year.
Lance Bradley, Managing Director, Mitsubishi Motors in the UK, said: “We’re extremely proud of the role the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV has played in building awareness and acceptance of electrically-powered vehicles in the UK and thanks to its unmatched combination of practicality, ease-of-use, elegant styling and low running costs, we are confident of maintaining our market-leading position well into the future.”
