Five years since Mitsubishi Motors launched the UK’s first plug-in hybrid commercial vehicle, the latest Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Reflex Commercial goes on sale offering British businesses the benefits of an ultra-low emissions vehicle for deliveries in urban areas and ULEV zones combined with the ability to cover longer distances non-stop when required.
Being classed as an Ultra-Low Emission Vehicle means the 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Reflex Commercial is also eligible for the UK government’s Plug-In Van Grant so customers enjoy a saving of £7,642 ($9,858) resulting in an on-the-road CV price of just £24,298 ($31,344).
The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Reflex Commercial is fitted with a full load bay bulkhead, a flat load area measuring 1.65m in length and 1.00m in width between the wheel arches with a maximum payload of 500kg. Standard specification includes alloy wheels, rear spoiler, rear parking sensors, automatic headlamps, rain-sensing wipers, heated front seats, DAB radio, Keyless Operation System and a dual-zone climate control system which can be programmed to warm/defrost or cool the van in advance of a journey.
Based on the same sophisticated plug-in hybrid technology as the passenger car, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Reflex Commercial also offers the assurances of an advanced four-wheel-drive system, a real benefit in icy and snowy conditions, as well an impressive official fuel economy figure of 139.7mpg, an EV range of 28 miles and low CO2 emissions of just 40g/km.
This latest version of the Outlander PHEV Commercial marks five years of sales of Mitsubishi Plug-in Hybrid commercial vehicles, with the first Outlander PHEV Commercial going on sale in 2014. Since launch over 550 examples of the Outlander PHEV Commercial have been registered in the UK and its popularity is growing year-on-year as small business users and government agencies experience the real-world benefits of a plug-in hybrid commercial vehicle.
