Mitsubishi Begins 2015 In Japan With 1,000 Plug-in Electric Cars Sold
1,018 plug-in electric cars sold in January 2015, that’s Mitsubishi’s result in Japan – on par with the 999 Nissan LEAFs and an unknown number of e-NV200.
Most of the sales, 830, are Outlander PHEVs, while all versions of MiEV kei cars had a total of just 188.
In the case of the Outlander PHEV, the numbers are lower than a year earlier (January 2014) by 36%. MiEVs finally are growing – by 53%.
From a wider perspective, we see that in two years Outlander PHEV reached a mark of 20,000 sales and exceeded the 17,000-unit mark for all MiEVs sold since 2009. This is the clear answer as to why Mitsubishi is now focusing PHEVs.
