Mayor of London Boris Johnson unveiled the latest edition of the Mitsubishi Outlander plug-in hybrid SUV while on a trade tour of Japan this morning.
Osamu Masuko, Mitsubishi Motors Corporation chairman and CEO said: "We greatly appreciate the significant progress the Mayor's initiatives in London have made to encourage the uptake of ultra-low emission vehicles. We are very proud that the Mayor has taken this opportunity to unveil our new Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV here in Tokyo today".
Lance Bradley, managing Director, Mitsubishi Motors in the UK said: "The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV along with forward looking and consistent Government policy on incentives is creating a market for plug-ins that will ultimately set the UK apart in global terms, by delivering the right balance of low emission driving, value for money, economy and practicality. This new model is another bold step in that direction."
The Government’s plug-in car grant enables Mitsubishi to offer the Outlander PHEV at the same price as the equivalent vehicle with a diesel engine. The Outlander PHEV accounts for half of all plug-in vehicle sales in the UK.
