Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV
In 2018, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV was awarded the 2019 Green SUV of the Year by Green Car Journal. This is mainly thanks to the fact that Mitsubishi keeps improving the standards for environmental performance through the production of the Outlander PHEV, year after year. And that’s not all, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV also makes this hybrid technology available for consumers at an affordable price, which was not seen until its introduction into the automotive market. In 2018, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV set a new record in Canada by achieving more than 5000 vehicles sales. This plug-in hybrid vehicle brings together the best of both worlds: the efficiency of electric vehicles and the capability of sports cars.
