Mit­subishi charg­ing into num­ber three spot

New Zealand Company Vehicle - - NEWS -

Just one month after the re­lease of the new 19MY Out­lander PHEV, Mit­subishi Mo­tors NZ’S mar­ket lead­ing plug-in hy­brid SUV has recorded its high­estever monthly sales fig­ure. The PHEV is part of the suc­cess story with the new Out­lander PHEV priced $8,000 be­low the pre­ced­ing model at $55,990 plus on-road costs. MMNZ Chief Op­er­at­ing Of­fi­cer Daniel Cook at­trib­uted the new model’s lower price point as a key fac­tor for in­creased cus­tomer up­take, along­side ris­ing fuel costs and an ex­pand­ing na­tional net­work of charg­ing sta­tions. “Out­lander PHEV has led its class since its re­lease in 2014; in our lat­est edi­tion, we wanted to make the PHEV even more ac­ces­si­ble to Ki­wis look­ing to em­brace this al­ter­na­tive tech­nol­ogy,” said Cook. “We are very pleased to have been able to do that and it is ex­tremely re­ward­ing to see more cus­tomers en­joy­ing the ben­e­fit.” Out­lander PHEV has an elec­tric range of 54km and a com­bined range of over 600km. DC Fast Charge ca­pa­bil­ity can recharge the bat­tery from 0 to 80 per­cent in around 20 min­utes.
