It’s not every day an electrified vehicle gets to call itself the best plug-in hybrid, but the 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV recently took that title for itself. The New England Motor Press Association announced the winner of the “Best in Class Green Vehicle Hybrid or PHEV” at the Winter Vehicle Awards. The association seems to like the Outlander PHEV — they called it the Best Green Winter Vehicle at the same event in 2018.
The Winter Vehicle Awards are unique. They involve a vehicle-testing competition in New England, a region of the U.S. known for its harsh winters. With frigid temperatures and several inches of snow on the ground, New England makes for the perfect place to put vehicles to the test. According to the tests conducted this past winter, the 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV scored top marks, proving itself a capable and efficient plug-in hybrid.
So what makes the 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV the best plug-in hybrid? Especially when it comes to the winter months, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV helps out drivers by providing them more confidence through the Super All-Wheel Control system. Plus, since it’s affordable and spacious, this PHEV SUV is a perfect pick for families.
The 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV has long been hailed as an affordable eco-friendly vehicle, and now it has the title to prove it. The model recently won the Green SUV of the Year® award at the Los Angeles Auto Show. With this prestigious award under its belt, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV continues to prove its worth as a top family vehicle.
Green Car Journal names the top eco-friendly vehicle the
prestigious Green SUV of the Year® each year. This year, the
Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV was the clear choice. By providing an efficient
driving experience at an affordable price, the 2019 Outlander PHEV stole the show.
“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,” said Fred Diaz, president
and CEO, Mitsubishi Motors North America.
The 2019 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV won Green SUV of the Year®
thanks to its 2.0-liter gasoline engine and Super All-Wheel Control system. The
PHEV crossover earns up to an EPA-estimated 74 mpg-e*. The crossover can charge
in as little as 25 minutes.
This isn’t the only award that the 2019 Outlander PHEV has
gleaned this year. Prior to winning the Green SUV of the Year®
award, the model won the Best Green Winter Vehicle award from the New England
Motor Press Association.
