“Looking at the wider plug-in market, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV actually accounted for close to half of all sales of plug-in hybrid vehicles to private customers in the U.K. in September, while an astonishing 78 percent of individual and small business users in the U.K. who bought a plug-in hybrid in September opted for a Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, incentivized by low BIK rates, low running costs and congestion charge exemptions,” reports Mitsubishi Motors. “Overall, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV represented 28 percent of the plug-in hybrid segment for the month. Year-to-date Outlander PHEV sales have topped 5,731 units, which equates to 17 percent of the total plug-in hybrid market in the U.K.”

“We are delighted with such a strong performance in September over our whole range of vehicles. The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV continues to perform well, and the 2019 revisions only broaden the appeal of such a versatile and capable vehicle,” said Rob Lindley, managing director, Mitsubishi Motors in the U.K.
