Every now and again someone, somewhere comes up with a brilliantly simple idea that for some reason hadn't been thought of before.
Fire; the wheel; paperclips; sliced bread; that sort of thing.
We're surrounded by stuff that is so common and everyday we forget that there's an actual person behind the brilliant idea. We may never know exactly who suggested taking a Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV and turning it into a commercial vehicle, but that person is a genius.
The Plug-in Outlander is an unequivocal success, not only in the SUV segment but right across the board. It's been Europe's best selling plug-in hybrid vehicle every year since 2015. It's the third best selling plug-in vehicle worldwide - behind the Tesla Model S and Nissan Leaf - and in 2014 and 2015 was the best-selling plug-in hybrid in the world. That's not a bad place to start.
Based on the well-equipped Mitsubishi PHEV Juro 4WD SUV, the commercial version offers businesses all the benefits of a low-emission vehicle alongside the range to cover long distances. It offers the triple advantage of reduced running costs, projecting a greener image to customers, and more importantly actually ensuring that you do your bit to improve air quality as you work. It can even operate freely in Ultra Low Emissions Zones cutting out the need for costly charges as you drive around.
The Outlander commercial features a full, floor-to-ceiling bulkhead located behind the front seats and a flat load area measuring 1.65m long, 1m wide and 800mm high at the tailgate. Plenty of space to fill it full of things you need to carry, up to a maximum payload of 510kg. You also get a well equipped cab with a heated windscreen, heated seats, heater and air-con scheduler function, reversing camera and electronic parking brake. The standard touchscreen audio system features Apple CarPlay & Android Auto compatibility along with Bluetooth connection and DAB radio too.
Mitsubishi is offering the best of every world for business users. The 28 mile electric range lowers running costs in heavy traffic or urban situations, the efficient petrol engine offers the longer range and also minimises downtime due to charging, and driving a Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Commercial allows businesses for whom a pure EV is unsuitable to consider a green alternative to pure petrol or diesel vans.
The battery can be recharged within five hours if you use a standard house plug; and around three hours if you use a 7kw wall box charger.
If you're running a business and you don't want to cut costs, improve your image, and make a positive environmental impact there isn't much we can do to help. On the other hand, if the new Mitsubishi Outlander Commercial sounds like the best thing for your business since sliced bread you should probably give us a call to discuss your lease options.
