Off the grid

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 geing 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 baery when­ever the brake pedal is pressed, keep­ing you out on the open road for even longer.
