Mitsubishi offers free electricity to Outlander PHEV buyers

Mitsubishi launches £4,500 Outlander PHEV scrappage scheme offer

Mitsubishi has partnered with OVO Energy to offer Outlander PHEV buyers 10,000 miles worth of free electricity.

Customers who purchase a new Outlander PHEV between February 1 and March 31 and switch their home energy supply to OVO Energy’s EV Everywhere bundle can claim the offer.

Buyers can also claim a £4,500 discount on the Outlander PHEV plug-in hybrid SUV via the Mitsubishi scrpappage scheme. Set to run until March 27 next year, the scheme aims to encourage the wider take up of ultra-low emission vehicles if customers agree to have their old trade-in vehicle scrapped.

To ensure a consistent supply of free green electricity, customers will receive £20 each month into their OVO Energy account for the 24-month duration of the offer, encouraging them to fully exploit the Outlander PHEV’s electric range of 28 miles (WLTP).

In addition, customers can choose a charging solution that works for them, with either a free OVO Smart Charger or Polar Plus membership included as part of the OVO Energy EV Everywhere bundle.

This is the first initiative borne from the collaboration between OVO Energy and Mitsubishi Motors in the UK.

Travelling 10,000 miles in “Electric Vehicle mode” represents a 1.6-tonne reduction in tailpipe CO2 emissions compared to driving a car that produces 100g/km of CO2, while also reducing noise and pollution in urban areas and stop-go traffic, where combustion-engine vehicles are at their least efficient.

Rob Lindley, managing director of Mitsubishi Motors in the UK, said: “Driving a Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV already brings significant environmental benefits but this offer goes the extra mile – or 10,000 miles, to be exact. Only by partnering with OVO Energy could we make such a bold offer and we hope it will successfully drive our shared ambitions of making transport in the UK more sustainable as quickly as possible.”

Tom Pakenham, director of Electric Vehicles, OVO Energy added: "We're excited to collaborate with Mitsubishi Motors to offer OVO Energy customers the opportunity to earn rewards from smart charging their electric vehicle. Our EV Everywhere bundle helps customers have more control over their total energy usage, with a complete at-home and on-the-go energy solution, enabling zero-carbon driving."

Volvo launched a similar offer in 2019, providing a year’s worth of electricity via reimbursement.
