2016 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV

2016 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV

Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV sales in Japan stayed strong for the third month in a row after the new 2016 model year launch.

With 1,896 sold in September, the total number for the third quarter stands at 5,592.

Meanwhile, Mitsubishi sold just 145 MiEV in September.

Outlander PHEV is still the best selling plug-in car in Japan, while the second best Nissan LEAF has been struggling ahead of the introduction of the new 2016 version (with 30 kWh battery). Only 835 were sold in September.  The new longer range, 2016 model doesn't arrive until December.

The big news is that, in total so far, Nissan and Mitsubishi combined sold in Japan 100,000 all-electric and plug-in hybrid cars (more than 56,000 LEAFs + some e-NV200 and more than 28,000 Outlander PHEV with 17,000 MiEVs).
