FOLLOWING the highly successful launch of the plug-in Mitsubishi Outlander passenger SUV earlier this year, the Outlander GX3h 4Work has appeared.
Designed for tough commercial assignments, the Mitsubishi Outlander GX3h 4Work inherits the high specification cabin refinement of the passenger Outlander PHEV and the same game changing economy, low environmental impact and off-road capability.
However, what sets it apart is a large and easily 1accessible rear 1,617 litres of payload space. The back seats have been removed and a floor fitted as well as blacked out windows.
The vehicle combines electric battery and petrol power. Unlike non plug-in hybrid vehicles, the Mitsubishi Outlander GX3h 4Work can travel substantially further on battery power – 32.5 miles – more than enough to accommodate most daily duty cycles. As such it rarely needs to visit a petrol pump.
The electric driving range gives the vehicle significant environmental credentials and it emits 44g/km of CO2 with the official combined fuel consumption figure of 148mpg.
The vehicle is exempt the London Congestion Charge and qualifies for the Government’s 20% plug-in van grant. It also benefits from 100 per cent first year capital allowance, which means its cost can be set against one year’s trading profit.
The Outlander GX3h 4Work will work out at just £23,373 after deducting the Government’s plug-in van grant and reclaiming the VAT.
Mike Thomas, General Manager of Product Planning for Mitsubishi Motors in the UK, said, “The Mitsubishi Outlander Gx3h 4Work represents a significant cost reduction for companies running fleets of vans and independent businesses that need a reliable all conditions, all weather work-horse.”
