Rear seats will be removed in van version

Rear seats will be removed in van version

Mitsubishi opened ordering books for the Outlander PHEV commercial vehicle version in the UK with expected deliveries this October.

Instead of rear seats, Outlander PHEV CV will have a huge load space with rubber floor covering. Windows in the rear doors will be blacked out and given a body color treatment.

While the base Outlander PHEV GX3h starts from £28,249 deducting £5000 plug-in vehicle grant, the Outlander PHEV GX3h 4Work van will start from £29,524 after the Plug-in Van Grant (£8,000 or 20%, which in this case is £7,381). Before incentives, the price is £36,905 ($61,200).

Will there be demand for the first plug-in hybrid van in the UK? You can bet we'll be tracking sales of this PHEV van closely.

The 'standard' Outlander PHEV is not expected to arrive in the US until MY 2016 in the late fall of 2015.  We imagine by then this model would also be available as part of the lineup.
