635 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEVs Headed To National Police Of Ukraine

The National Police of Ukraine will be taking delivery of 635 Mitsubishi Outlander SUV plug-in hybrids in or around July 2017, according to a new press release from Mitsubishi itself.

The National Police of Ukraine will be taking delivery of 635 Mitsubishi Outlander SUV plug-in hybrids in or around July 2017, according to a new press release from Mitsubishi itself.

These Outlander plug-in hybrids (PHEVs) will be supplied through the company’s local importer and distributor, MMC Ukraine*1 MMC.

The press release provides more:

“The supply stems from an emissions trading agreement signed by a number of Japanese companies with the Government of Ukraine. As part of its policy to reduce CO2 and greenhouse gas emissions using the Green Investment Scheme*2 under the Kyoto Protocol, the Ukrainian government will use the Outlander PHEVs as police vehicles.

“This marks the second time MMC has supplied vehicles under the Green Investment Scheme, the first being to deliver of 507 units of the i-MiEV all-new electric vehicle to the Government of Estonia starting in October 2011.”

As a reminder, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV has consistently been one of the best selling plug-in electric vehicles in Europe since its launch there. It’s notable, though, that the model doesn’t feature much of an all-electric range. Though, it does seem to have clearly been designed with the use of this limited all-electric range in mind.

In related news, recent comments made by Mitsubishi execs suggest that the US may finally be getting the model — after many, many years of delays. Given how many times the US launch has been delayed to date, though, it may be worth taking the comments by the exec with a grain of salt.
