Mitsubishi targets company executives with upmarket PHEV

Published 22 January 2015

Mitsubishi has introduced a higher specification version of the Outlander plug-in hybrid (PHEV) aimed at company car drivers in premium badge models.

The Outlander GX5h and GX5hs include high-quality Nappa leather seats in a choce of three colours, a high-end 420W Alpine audio upgrade, new interior lighting and heated seats in both front and rear.

Distinguishing exterior features include full-length side steps, an Outlander badge on the leading edge of the bonnet, a rear spoiler and chrome surrounds for the front fog lamps/daytime running lights.

The Outlander PHEV has CO2 emission of 44g/km and currently attracts a BIK tax band of 5%, rising to 7% in April 2015. Currently the only plug-in hybrid in the compact SUV sector, most diesel rivals have CO2 emissions of around 130g/km and above, taking them into a much higher BIK tax band.

Clive Messenger, head of corporate sales at Mitsubishi Motors in the UK, said: “The GX5h and GX5hs plug-in hybrid Outlanders offer such a fantastic package of benefits for both companies and company car drivers – high specification, luxury feel, low running costs, strong environmental credentials. We are expecting it to quickly populate company car choice lists UK-wide.”
