We’re all big fans of Mitsubishi’s groundbreaking PHEV over here at MotorMartin Towers so we we’re all pleased to see how Mitsubishi Motors in the UK continue to lead the way in the plug-in hybrid market with the UK’s best-selling plug-in hybrid electric vehicle. Mitsubishi have now confirmed to MotorMartin how their Outlander PHEV has once again topped the sales charts in July with 436 units registered, bringing calendar year to date sales to 4,083 unit, a reduction of just 2% over the same period in 2018 despite the PHEV market in the UK being 50% down year on year. Excellent news.
