Enjoy fuel-efficient motoring and lower emissions with New Zealand’s best-selling Plug-in Hybrid vehicle
The season of road tripping is almost upon us. Those long journeys with kids and pets in tow are always memorable – pulling in at local rest stops to stretch the legs, with the 4-year-old’s favourite movie soundtrack on repeat and Baxter the Labrador geing excited in the back at the first whiff of salty sea air. Memories like these are always interwoven with imagery of New Zealand’s lush green landscape – a recollection we hope will be enjoyed by many generations to come. And with more hybrid vehicles on the roads reducing our carbon emissions, that dream is closer than ever to being realised.
The Mitsubishi PHEV is New Zealand’s best-selling Plug-in Hybrid and achieves remarkable fuel efficiency and environmental performance. Using an unbelievable 1.7l of fuel per 100km, the PHEV has been awarded a 6-star Energywise rating and boasts annual fuel costs of just $280. Yes, that’s per year!
Charging your vehicle while on the road couldn’t be easier. You can charge the PHEV in around 20 minutes by simply plugging into the nearest fast-charge station at more than 100 (and counting) handy locations across the country. Plus, the car’s regenerative braking system charges its drive baery whenever the brake pedal is pressed, keeping you out on the open road for even longer.
