Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Best-selling Vehicle

Mar 13 2018 | by Louise Woodhams

The Outlander PHEV has out-sold all other models in the Mitsubishi range. In 2018, the Outlander PHEV was the best-selling plug-in hybrid vehicle in Europe across all segments, an accolade it claimed for the fourth consecutive year. During this time, the car has also gradually become Mitsubishi Motors Europe’s best-selling vehicle.

In total, between October 2013 and January 2019, 126,617 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEVs have been sold in Europe. This success has been boosted by significant growth recorded in markets like Germany and France along with the launch of the 2019 model during September 2018, featuring a new 2.4-litre petrol engine that produces 135hp (up from 121hp) with greater torque (156lb-ft vs 140lb-ft).

Increased output of the rear electric motor, drive battery and overall battery capacity resulted in an EV driving range of 28 miles, which is in excess of the average daily commute, and WLTP combined fuel economy of 139mpg and emissions of 46 g/km.
