Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV wins Fleet World Award
‘Best Ultra Low Emission Vehicle’
The UK’s top selling plug-in, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, was awarded the ‘Best Ultra Low Emission Vehicle’ in the 2015 Fleet World Honours, at the RAC Club in London on 19 May 2015.
The EV market has had a significant year with a number of strong new entries, and for the first time it looks as though it can gain a firm foothold in the UK car market. The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV has been instrumental in this change.

Best Ultra Low Emission Vehicle
The annual Fleet World Honours are presented to motor manufacturers, service companies and individuals that have, in the opinion of the judges, achieved the highest possible level of excellence in their sector.
"Helped by price parity with the diesel version, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV’s phenomenal success has transformed Mitsubishi’s presence in fleet. With over 10,000 Outlander PHEV’s sold in the UK in its first eight months, it has overtaken the Nissan LEAF’s four-year total. Two thirds of Outlander PHEV sales went to business users. With ongoing investment in the dealer network and production being expanded in Japan, Mitsubishi Motors UK reckons it’s only the beginning. But what a start." (Steve Moody, Fleet World Editor)
Smooth, Quiet and Refined
The combination of the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV’s powerful electric motors and petrol engine give it a smooth, quiet, refined ride with the potential of reaching 148mpg. It only emits 44g/km CO2, which means no Vehicle Excise Duty (VED). Most significantly, the entry model Outlander PHEV is available to buy at the same price as its diesel equivalent, starting at £28,249.

What’s more, company car drivers will benefit further - a 40% tax paying customer will pay company car tax on the Outlander PHEV of £665 in the first year. Businesses benefit because they can write-down the vehicle’s full value in the first 12 months.
