UK Remains Biggest European Market For PHEVs, Outlander PHEV Leads

JUN 30 2018 BY MARK KANE 3

After the first five months of the year, the British market with a big advantage remains the top market for plug-in hybrid models in Europe.

British PHEV sales are not only the highest, but with 47% growth, it’s hard to find any contender that could take the lead.

  • UK: ≈17,200 (+47%)
  • Germany: ≈13,000 (+32.7%)
  • Norway: ≈11,600 (+12.6%)
  • Sweden: ≈8,100 (+81.7%)
  • France: ≈5,100 (+59.9%)

Top five countries total: ≈55,000

Surprisingly, small Norway still notes sales almost as high as Germany.

In the case of the UK, the favorite plug-in hybrid for the fourth consecutive year is the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV. The Japanese SUV outsold the closest PHEV by roughly 2:1 and soon will be reinforced by the updated 2019 model year version.

The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is fifth best-selling plug-in model in Europe with nearly 8,000 sales.

How many Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV SUV’s have been sold so far?

I mean the global cumulative total.

Somewhere inbetween 100,000 and 200,000?

It passed 100,000 in Europe in December 2017. So it’s no compliance car.

The Outlander PHEV sells well in most markets apart from the USA which only sell about 300 per month.
