Mitsubishi Outlander GX5 PHEV

Mitsubishi Outlander GX5 PHEV

Sales of Mitsubishi cars in Europe continued to grow in 2014 to almost 137,000 (up 28% year-over-year).

One of the most important models on the market for Mitsubishi is of course the Outlander (sales reached 38,617 last year).

Of those, nearly 52% (19,980) were plug-in hybrid Outlander PHEVs. This is by far the highest sales number that we've ever seen for a single plug-in car model in one year in Europe - over 5,000 above the second best Nissan LEAF.

In 2013, Mitsubishi sold 8,197 Outlander PHEVs, so a total of 28,177 were delivered (through December 2014) in some 15-months since it went on sale in Europe.

While in 2013 almost all (8,009) Outlander PHEVs went to the Netherlands, last year's sales were more diversified:

By country

  • Netherlands: 7,666
  • UK: 5,370
  • Sweden: 2,289
  • Norway: 1,485
  • Germany: 1,060
