Humphries and Parks Mitsubishi is celebrating with the manufacturer after selling the 10,000th Outlander PHEV to be sold in the UK.
Managing director of Mitsubishi Motors UK Lance Bradley personally handed the keys to buyer Paul Aspin, at the showroom on London Road, Kent.
Commenting on his new purchase, Aspin said: “It’s a fantastic vehicle and I’m happy to be the 10,000th customer. The Outlander PHEV ticks all the boxes for me. It’s great to drive, it’s comfortable, economical and it’s good for the environment. It’s got lots of clever technology but you don’t need to be a tech expert to use it.”
Dealer principal Marcus Joy said: “This is the 92nd PHEV we have sold and we are delighted it’s the 10,000th for Mitsubishi Motors UK.
“The Outlander PHEV has been a fantastic success for us and it’s definitely created a halo around the brand, enabling us to sell more of the other products in the range, which can only be good for everyone in the network.”
Bradley added: “To sell 10,000 Outlander PHEVs between June and the end of March was a challenge set by our colleagues in Japan – given the market for plug-in hybrid vehicles in 2013 was 980, it seemed like a very big challenge. But the reaction to the vehicle has been fantastic and that is because it’s a car without compromise.”
Launched in April 2014, the Outlander PHEV has now outsold every other plug-in hybrid and pure electric car on the market.
