Mitsubishi’s Outlander PHEV has won lots of awards since it was first unveiled in 2012, scooping six in 2014 alone.
From business and fleet awards to green car commendations, this electric hybrid vehicle has gained notable attention for its eco-friendly credentials.
Fleet World, Green Fleet, Diesel Car, Business Car, Green Apple and Next Green Car have all awarded the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV in 2014.
It’s a plug-in hybrid SUV, taking this innovative technology to new heights of sophistication. Costing the same as the diesel model, it offers excellent value for money and has been the most popular plug-in hybrid in the UK.
Scooping many business awards, it’s clear the car is a cost-effecitve option. Many businesses now choose to have electric points so their employees can plug in before driving to meetings. This SUV is the perfect answer for businesses, allowing them to offer a robust car alongside the hatchbacks and saloons normally offered with electric technology.
The judges of the Diesel Car of the Year Awards 2014 commented, “The Outlander PHEV is one of the most significant cars of 2014 thanks to its plug-in hybrid technology. There's generous space for five people, including their luggage, and best of all, it costs the same as the regular diesel Outlander to buy”. It came out on top against 200 other tried and tested models.
The Outlander PHEV also has smart appeal thanks to its sophisticated design. Sharp headlights, a sculpted nose and subtle contours adorn this chunky SUV to give it a handsome edge.
It was also the close runner-up in the AutoExpress Green Car category at its Car of the Year awards. The car review site commended the Outlander PHEV on its practical use of space, value for money and concealed hybrid technology that is barely noticeable on the exterior.
