Ukraine Police Orders 651 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEVs

While the BMW i3 is becoming more popular with police forces around the world, another “green” vehicle, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, is getting ready to serve and protect Ukraine’s residents.

Announced by the country’s Minister of Internal Affairs, Arsen Avakov, the 651 units ordered will replace the dated VAV and UAZ Russian-made police vehicles and will arrive with the Natspolitsiya (Ukraine Police) soon.

So, gentlemen, Ukrainian policemen! You will receive 651 new and unique modern powerful eco-friendly hybrid crossover Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV. The people of Ukraine hope that you will be worth of this innovation! Serve with honor!“, Avakov said in a statement, cited by InsideEVs.

Mitsubishi readied the Outlander PHEV for the 2017MY, marking its first appearance at the New York Auto Show, prior to it going on sale this fall. It looks identical to the updated European and Japanese variants and features a 2.0-liter petrol engine and two electric motors, mounted on the front and rear axles, providing all-wheel drive performance. The SUV drinks almost 5 lt/100 km (47.04 mpg US) and its 12 kWh lithium-ion battery pack, fitted under the floor, provides an all-electric driving range of 37.7 miles (60.8 km).

    The Outlander PHEV is a state of art when it comes to a propulsion that balances combustion engine and electric motors. Could achieve a lot more if wasn’t the bad moment faced by Mitsubishi. As now the tri-diamond brand is 34-percent owned by Nissan, maybe we can see some models from Renault’s partner being powered by the same layout we see in this CUV.
