Mitsubishi Celebrates More Than 100,000 Outlander PHEVs Sold In Europe

The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV has sold over 100,000 units in Europe, claiming the title of the best-selling plug-in hybrid SUV.

The important milestone comes as the Outlander PHEV is being launched in the U.S. market, where Mitsubishi hopes it’ll carry the same sales momentum.

Despite the growing number of automakers adopting the plug-in hybrid technology, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is still the only crossover in its segment to offer a PHEV powertrain.

“The Outlander PHEV has been a game-changer for the brand since its launch in the European market, and we’re extremely proud of the industry strides it’s made ever since,” said Don Swearingen, executive vice president and chief operating officer, MMNA.

“The new CUV model arrives at a time when Mitsubishi continues to ride its recent sales momentum as the fastest growing non-luxury brand in the U.S. in 2017”, Swearingen added.

The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV’s powertrain combines a 2.0-liter petrol engine with two electric motors mounted on each axle. The combined output is rated at 195hp, with the floor-mounted battery pack having a 12kWh capacity. The plug-in hybrid SUV also comes with Mitsubishi’s Super All-Wheel Control (S-AWC) system and DC Fast Charging capability as standard.

Prices for the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV in the US market starts from $35,535.

  • Outlander PHEV is Mitsubishi unsung hero, it attracts more buyer in their showroom (In UK at least, possibly Europe).

    And somehow is the car choice for Ukrainian Rozzers…

      It’ll be the only thing that gets anyone to look into one of their showrooms.
      *Sigh* I remember models such as the 3000 GT.

    I really like the Outlander inscription on the hood of the Euro version. I wish the US spec was as good looking!

      The pictures above are the US Spec Model, in other words they do have that feature.

        Ironically I don’t think the European version gets the inscription, probably because it’s too tacky for Euro market tastes.

          UK version was the first one with that inscription since 2016.

            Thanks. Surprising since I thought it would be too ‘blingy’ for your average UK consumer.
