Having proved its success in the UK, where Outlander PHEV is the best selling alternative fuelled vehicle, 2016 Outlander has now been unveiled in Tokyo.
The plug-in 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV accounts for half of its sales in the UK which is the reason why the company views UK as its most important market and it is for this reason that the Mayor of London was called upon to unveil the facelift in Tokyo.
To date, Mitsubishi has sold a total of 9,303 units of Outlander PHEV in the UK and expects to see even more success where the facelifted 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV SUV is concerned. Government grants for plug-in hybrid vehicles also allow Mitsubishi to offer the Outlander PHEV at the same price as an equivalent vehicle with a diesel engine.
Mitsubishi plans on showcasing 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV at the upcoming Tokyo Motor Show later this month. To be seen with a new trapezoidal design on front bumper, new grille, new tailgate and refreshed tail light design, the facelifted Mitsubishi also sports a host of chrome accents adding to its premium appeal.
Its engine sees little change and continues to offer pure electric range of 32 miles while its 2.0 liter petrol engine takes it upto a hybrid range of 540 miles. CO2 emissions stand at 42 g/km. Where exterior color options are concerned, 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander can be ordered in Ruby Black Pearl, Quartz Brown Metallic, Black Mica, Technical Silver Metallic, Titanium Red Metallic, Red Metallic and White Pearl.
