Mitsubishi Outlander Sets PHEV Sales Record
Mitsubishi’s Outlander plug-in-hybrid has set a new record for PHEV sales in Canada.
Recently, Mitsubishi Motor Sales Canada announced that 5,052 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEVs have been delivered year-to-date, making it both Canada’s best-selling plug-in hybrid and Canada’s best-selling plug-in hybrid SUV.
Additionally, the Outlander PHEV recently received Green Car Journal’s 2019 Green SUV of the Year at AutoMobility, the press preview for the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show.
“Canadians are recognizing that the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is electric and helping to establish a new industry high water mark,” said Tony Laframboise, President and CEO, Mitsubishi Motor Sales of Canada.
“We see our strongest results in Québec month-after-month. Most Outlander PHEV customers were in gas-only SUVs and cars previously. As the first affordable plug-in hybrid SUV in the market, we’re helping to significantly grow adoption to EV. We are very proud of that.
Mitsubishi says that its dealer network has been a big part of the PHEV’s success, with wide availability of the vehicle from coast-to-coast.
An outstanding 47 per cent of Outlander PHEV sales have come from Québec. Year to date, the top five Outlander PHEV dealers in Canada in terms of volume are Québec Mitsubishi (Québec), Metrotown Mitsubishi (B.C.), St. Hyacinthe Mitsubishi (Québec), Wolfe Mitsubishi (B.C.) and Boisvert Mitsubishi (Québec).
