Mitsubishi Plug-In Car Sales in Japan – January 2015

Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV

Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV

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.
