Following on from the car’s launch, the Commercial variant of the ever-popular plug-in hybrid Outlander PHEV is now available.
Benefiting from low CO2 emissions of 46g/km (NEDC Correlated) thanks to an enhanced plug-in hybrid powertrain, the new Outlander PHEV Commercial is able to enter ULEV zones that are soon to come into force around the UK.
The vehicle is additionally available with the UK government’s Plug-in Van Grant, meaning customers can expect a saving of £7,900 resulting in an on-the-road price of £25,113 (excluding VAT including the PiVG, VED and First Registration Fee).
Commercial spec is based on the car-variant’s Juro, and comes with a full floor-to-ceiling bulkhead located behind the front seats, which is solid at the base while the top half features a protective metal mesh. The flat load area measures 1,650mm in length, 1,000mm in width (measured between the wheel arches), 800mm high at the tailgate and has a maximum payload of 510kg.
Aiding traction in either rough or slippery conditions is Mitsubishi’s electric all-wheel drive system, with normal, snow and lock modes available at the touch of a button.
Standard spec includes 18-inch alloy wheels, a heated windscreen, heated seats, heater and air-con scheduler function, reversing camera and electronic parking brake. The standard touchscreen audio system includes Apple CarPlay & Android Auto compatibility as standard, along with Bluetooth connection and DAB radio.
Revisions over the Commercial’s predecessor have added both petrol and electric power in the shape of a 2.4-litre Atkinson cycle 135hp petrol unit, as well as a more powerful electric motor that enables more electric-only driving and an increased range of 28 miles (WLTP). Fuel consumption is rated at 139mpg (WLTP).
The 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Juro Commercial is available to order now. More details can be found at www.mitsubishi-cars.co.uk/OutlanderPHEV
