Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Is #1 Again

The Mitsubishi Outlander Plug-In Hybrid (PHEV) is topping market after market these days. With strong sales in a few countries, it even rose to #1 in Europe recently. The latest news is that it has passed up the Nissan LEAF (long he #1 electric car in many a market) to top the UK electric car charts.

The RAC Foundation has released UK electric car registration data for the first quarter (Q1) of 2015. It showed that Outlander PHEV registrations rose to 9,688 (up from 5,273 in Q4 2014). That put it a bit above the LEAF, which hit 8,274, and way above any other models — the #3 BMW i3 saw 2,186 registrations. The Outlander PHEV also saw the biggest percentage change.

There are 26 electric car models in the UK that are eligible for the £5,000 government EV grant (and 9 electric vans eligible for the £8,000. But it’s clear that a couple of models are far more competitive than the rest. I’m eager to see how things shake out in Q2!
