Mitsubishi’s Outlander Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) has been added to the list of vehicles in the UK eligible for the Government’s Plug in Car Grant which offers customers £5,000 towards their purchase.
The Outlander PHEV can drive in full electric mode for over 30 miles and it emits 44g/km CO2, which means customers pay nothing for Vehicle Excise Duty (VED). It has a BIK rating of 5% for company car drivers.
Lance Bradley, Mitsubishi Motors UK’s managing director, said: “Having one of the first plug-in hybrid’s in the UK market that boasts 4x4 capability with an EV range of 32.5 miles and emissions as low as 44 g/km puts Mitsubishi at the forefront of a new era in the automotive industry.
“The vehicle is extra-ordinary and very different to other hybrids in the market and we are delighted that the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV has met the high level of criteria required to qualify for the Plug in Car Grant.
“It will appeal to a wide cross-section of private individuals and business users, with its exciting combination of innovation, style and technology and we are thrilled to confirm that pricing will be announced shortly.”
