Outlander PHEV five star rated by JNCAP

Mitsubishi's Outlander PHEV has been awarded with 2013 Japan New Car Assessment Program (JNCAP) five star award, adding to its five-star rating from Euro NCAP in December 2013.

The vehicle satisfied all tests regarding electric shock safety; including protection against electric shock, high-voltage battery electrolyte leakage performance, and high-voltage battery attachment status.

The Outlander PHEV's results follow the record of its sibling, the Outlander SUV, which also received the 2012 JNCAP Five Star Award in May 2013, in addition to ratings in Europe, the United States, and Australia.

The companyplans to introduce a wider range of models based on this product direction in the future, as displayed at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show with the MITSUBISHI Concept GC-PHEV and the MITSUBISHI Concept XR-PHEV, both a combination of electric, 4x4, and SUV technologies.
