The new Outlander Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle recently received the Green Car Journal’s 2019 Green SUV of the Year award at the LA Auto Show. Perfect for communities — like Vero Beach — that experience stop-and-go traffic, the PHEV saves daily commuters on gas and reduces their carbon footprint. The Outlander PHEV is just one of many advances that sets the bar for environmental design.
Green Car Journal recognizes eco-friendly vehicles on the market. It notes that most drivers want lower environmental impact and greater fuel economy without giving up style and driving experience, which is where the Outlander PHEV comes in. You get space, comfort, and performance, yet the PHEV design means you’re also saving on gas and reducing emissions.
“The Outlander PHEV is a halo vehicle for the brand and we’re proud to bring consumers an efficient yet capable plug-in hybrid CUV at a price point they can afford,” said Fred Diaz, President and Chief Executive Officer, MMNA. “This prestigious award is a testament to the strong value of this vehicle, and reaffirms Mitsubishi’s commitment to an electric-powered future made up of innovative and affordable vehicles.”
Every year, the Automotive Science Group honors innovators in the automotive industry for leading in technological, safety, and performance advancements. For 2018, both the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV and the Mitsubishi Outlander have earned top honors from that discerning and hard-to-impress set of vehicular scientists.
Both the Mitsubishi Outlander and the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV were bestowed with the “Best 5 All-Around Performance” award. In order to be one of the top five, a vehicle must score highest in its class in environmental, social, and economic performance surveys.
This top-spot was earned out of a pool of 372 competing models. Today, the crossover and SUV market is more popular than ever, so the size and stiffness of the competition the Outlander platform had to take on was bigger than before. However, we weren’t surprised when the Outlanders blew that competition out of the water.
At Dependable Mitsubishi, you could say that we’re close to “experts” when it comes to the auto industry — it is our passion and livelihood after all. So when we see something special like the attractive, efficient, and reliable Outlander models, we take notice — and the real experts agree.
If you want to see and test-drive the two crossovers that scored the coveted Automotive Science Group honors, come to Dependable Mitsubishi today.
Mitsubishi is preparing to become a solely SUV-focused automaker in the US, and it’s pretty clear why: Mitsubishi does SUVs very well. Just take the 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander, for instance. There’s a whole lot to love about the new Outlander, such as the following:
