Ukraine To Gets 635 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEVs

Mitsubishi Motors announced that it secured a deal to supply the Ukranian police with 635 Outlander PHEVs.

It’s not clear as to in what capacity the vehicles will be used for, but they should all be delivered this July. The deal was originally pegged to be for upwards of 651 units, to be delivered in an unknown timeframe.

For Mitsubishi, this is the second bulk government order it’s secured for its plug-in vehicles. The first was from Estonia, where deliveries of some 507 i-MiEVs got underway back in October 2011.

Of note from the press releases is this Outlander PHEV sales statement:

“Since its launch in 2013, the Outlander PHEV has recorded cumulative sales of 80,768 units (as at the end of 2016) and ranked the best-selling plug-in hybrid vehicle for four years in a row in Europe.”

    Amazing, even the police of a war-battered country gets the Outlander PHEV before the USA does!

    1. instant tq says:

      which is really unfair, because Ukraine is now sponsored by the west, basically US tax payers

      1. vadik says:

        What Ukraine gets is literally 1000 to 10000 times less than small countries like Greece.

        Ukraine had believed USA once a decade ago as they gave up their nuclear weapons for a US promise of peace and territorial integroty. Time has shown, that it was very stupid to rely on America. Much more to hope for any meaningful aid from a Russian spy Trump.

          Sad but true.

        2. LJ Grzyl says:

          Yup,thats what happened.

        What’s left of it, as Russia attempts to reconstitute the Soviet Block. What a waste, but then Putin is good at destroying things, like people, men, and material.

      Exactly!!!!

      USA is one of the hottest selling SUV market in the world.. But we still got nothing!

  2. vadik says:

    There should be a way to make the policemen actually plug it in

  3. speculawyer says:

    I’m sure they will be very happy to reduce their reliance on (Russian) oil.

  4. Noel says:

    Yes it is a pretty good looking police SUV for Ukraine and it is Mitsubishi? I am car guy also because I love a lot?

  5. Nix says:

    This should be great news for all the Ukrainian police who post here…..

    1. William says:

      Or, not so great news for all of the “volunteer” Russian soldiers crossing into the Crimean Peninsula and helping the Russian separatists. This Russian insurgency should make the Donbass region safe from any Outlander PHEV’s trying to find a charger in Coal Country or any plug in outlet!

    The next one will be Chevy Bolt EV = Opel Ampera E. Both Chevy and Opel cars are assembled in Ukraine for more than 10 years. (I’m the owner of one of them) There will be no need to buy foreign stuff with Chevy Bolt assembled locally. (And that’ll be my next car!)
