Mayor of London Unveils Redesigned Mitsubishi Outlander in Tokyo
The job of the Mayor of London is extremely important—after all, he’s the mayor of one of the greatest cities in the world. In fact, the mayor’s job is so important, that he occasionally goes to Tokyo, Japan to do important stuff. Like what? Oh, you know—just saving the world, kissing babies, and launching the facelifted Mitsubishi Outlander range.
Boris Johnson, the current Mayor of London, recently found himself at Mitsubishi’s headquarters in Tokyo, Japan to launch the new Mitsubishi Outlander alongside Mitsubishi Chairman and CEO Osamu Masuka and Mitsubishi’s UK Managing Director Lance Bradley.
You’re probably confused as to why the Mayor of London has received such an honor—and trust me, you’re not alone. But once you actually know more about Boris Johnson, it will make since. The Mayor of London is the man behind many brilliant, eco-friendly initiatives in the city of London, including an ultra-low emission zone throughout the city and an increased focus on having more alternative-fuel vehicles in the city.
In fact, these initiatives are one of the reasons the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is so popular in the United Kingdom. Currently, Outlander PHEV sales account for almost half of all plug-in vehicle sales in the UK. This makes it an extremely appealing market for Mitsubishi’s ultra-low emission vehicle technologies. The redesigned Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is sure to increase sales even more.
