A fleet game changer?

Mitsubishi Motors is celebrating the news that the all-new Outlander Plug-in electric 4×4 has received the ‘Green Award’ at this year’s BusinessCar Techie Awards.

Lance Bradley, Managing Director of Mitsubishi Motors in the UK, said: “We are delighted that the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV has won the ‘Green Award’ at the BusinessCar Techie’s. The Outlander PHEV is an exciting new vehicle, at the forefront of a new era in fleet and company car use.”

The Techie’s are the industry’s only technology-specific awards which celebrate clever use of technology that makes company car and fleet operation easier, cheaper, cleaner, safer and more straightforward. Now in the sixth year, the Techies are judged by BusinessCar’s expert and experienced editorial panel, covering all the major sectors of the corporate marketplace.

The Outlander was given the nod partly because it has helped open up ultra-low emission vehicles to a wider audience, thanks to the car’s practicality and post-grant pricing against an equivalent diesel. It goes without say that plug-in technology is going to form a huge part of fleet mobility in the near future, and with the Outlander Mitsubishi is showing that it can make great financial sense as well as helping enforce a firm’s green credentials. With this in mind, the Techies have rightfully called the 4×4 a game changer.

The combination of the Outlander’s powerful electric motors and petrol engine give it a smooth, quiet, refined ride with an official fuel consumption figure of 148mpg1. It only emits 44g/km CO2 which means for company car drivers a BIK rate of 5% and Vehicle Excise Duty (VED) of £0. Most significantly, Mitsubishi is not charging for the PHEV technology, with prices ranging from £28,2492 to £34,999.
