Demand for Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Surges in Netherlands
Mitsubishi Motors is reporting high demand in Europe for its first plug-in hybrid, the Outlander PHEV, delivering over 8,000 of the 12,000 ordered so far.
The car launched in Norway, Sweden, Switzerland and The Netherlands last October, and has just been approved for the UK government’s plug-in vehicle grant, cutting the price by £5,000. It features electric motors at the front and rear wheels with a power and range-boosting petrol engine, to offer all-electric four-wheel drive at up to 75mph with CO2 emissions of 44g/km.
Sales to date have been heavily weighted towards The Netherlands, where vehicles emitting less than 95g/km are exempt from registration fees and road tax. So far, of the 8,197 units delivered to Europe to date, 8,009 have been sold to Dutch customers, and the range includes two fleet-focused trim levels with rapid charging capability as standard.
