Mitsubishi launches first 4×4 PHEV van

A sturdy load bed, capable of handling around 500kg, is installed in the rear of  the vehicle at the same height as the loading sill. This can be accessed from the  rear hatch or through the two side load doors. The van is also capable of pulling  a 1,500kg trailer.

Priced at £23,373 after the Government’s PiVG grant, the Outlander 4Work is capable of travelling up to 32.5 miles on electric power alone. In combined use it  emits just 44g/km and boasts an official fuel figure of 148mpg. As a commercial vehicle it also benefits from a 100% first year capital allowance this year.

'The Outlander Gx3h 4Work represents a significant cost reduction for companies running fleets of vans and independent businesses that need a reliable all conditions, all-weather workhorse,' said Mike Thomas, general manager of product planning for Mitsubishi Motors.

The van boasts 18” alloy wheels, rear parking sensors, Bluetooth, brake regeneration paddles, cruise control and speed limiter, remote keyless entry and auto wipers. It also comes as standard with Mitsubishi’s super all-wheel control (S-AWC) traction system that makes four wheel drive available at the push of a button.
