The Mitsubishi Outlander plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) remains the UK’s highest-selling PHEV. 436 units were registered in July, bringing calendar year to date sales to 4083 unit, a reduction of 2% over the same period in 2018. The PHEV market in the UK has been 50% down y/y.

Overall, the vehicle represented 24.7% of the plug-in hybrid segment for the month.

Toby Marshall, Director of Sales and Marketing, Mitsubishi Motors in the UK said “It is very pleasing to see the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV performing well and leading the way for the plug-in hybrids in the UK, especially in a time in which the plug-in hybrid market remains challenging.

The car is on-the-road (OTR) priced from £36 755 and delivers 46 g/km CO2 emissions and an official world harmonised light vehicle test procedure (WLTP) economy figure of 139 mpg. A dedicated commercial version is also available from £25 113.
