Mitsubishi was named Plug-In Vehicle of the Year by Scotland’s national newspaper.

The Scotsman tested the car over the long term and said it “lived up to its ecocredentials and impressed as a genuinely practical motor“.


Over 15,000 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV sold in UK


More about the Outlander PHEV’s win:

“The title’s Steven Chisholm called the Outlander PHEV ‘an exciting prospect for anyone looking for an SUV that’s easy on the wallet as well as the environment’.

He praised the vehicle’s material and build quality as well as the cabin’s planning and space plus ‘huge boot’. In addition, he highlighted how – thanks to the Outlander PHEV’s all-electric range of 32½ miles – staff would ‘relish the challenge of hyper-miling the battery’ on their 30-mile round trips from home to the office and back again without using any petrol at all.

And it was the Outlander PHEV’s great fuel consumption as well as its SUV practicality that combined to make it the newspaper’s winner.”

    Mitsu is doing well with this vehicle.

    It sells about the same volume as Nissan and Tesla, but if Mitsubishi could make more vehicles and sell in USA, it would have been 2015 top EV seller in the world.

    No true scotsman would drive a PHEV

    1. Just_Chris says:

      Very true, once any Scotsman realises that oil revenues go to Westminster whilest wind revenues benefit local scots communities he would settle for nothing less than a pure electric!

    2. Stephen says:

      And I thought the Scots were thrifty.
      I was born in Scotland and will take a serious look at it when it’s launched in U.S.

    Good for you, Mitsubishi, in building and selling a popular plug-in EV.

    Now, would you please do something about significantly increasing the ~23 mile real-world electric driving range?

      Although i would love more AER,i thing 23 miles AER is still worth it for a green loving person that absolutely must have an SUV. Wish they could bring it to India at a reasonable price.

    While EU and Japan are enjoying this practical PEV, the largest SUV market of the world is still hungry for this car. Yet, Mitsubishi continues to “tease” the potential US buyers with the repeated delay of the offering.

    What are you waiting for? Mitsubishi? Are you trying to wait for Chevy/Ford/Nissan to come out with something better and cheaper?

      “Are you trying to wait for Chevy/Ford/Nissan to come out with something better”

      Sign me up for that … Mitsubishi made a great start, but I would be willing to pay more if they add
      – bigger battery
      – multi-ratio transmission when engine is mechanically driving the front wheels

      In short, I’d love an SUV with a Voltec drive system
