Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Wins MGMW Green Apple Awards
The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV just keeps racking up award after award while we all pleasantly await its hopefully inevitable US arrival. This time, the Outlander PHEV took home the Best Hybrid/Electric and Best Overall awards at the MGMW Green Apple Awards last week.
The annual awards, determined by the Midland Group of Motoring Writers, honored the Outlander PHEV for its combination of real-world utility and future-thinking economy.
“Many car firms have claimed to have introduced a ground breaker in the past 12 months but this one [Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV] really is,” said one judge. “It embraces everything that’s good about new technology without compromise and has the potential to save you a small fortune. Mitsubishi’s decision to price it the same as diesel is the real clincher.”
In just a few short months, the Outlander PHEV has already taken home the Towcar of the Year Award for Innovation, “Best Green Development” at the Techie Awards, and Best Alternative Fuel Vehicle by Diesel Car. It has also earned the distinction of being the best-selling plug-in hybrid vehicle in all of the UK.
It can only be expected that the Outlander PHEV, whether it’s available stateside or not, will continue to rack up awards as we get into the thick of the season.
