Environmental Activities  vol.61 Mitsubishi Corporation Mitsubishi Motors Ukraine Police Order for Mitsubishi
Outlander PHEVs

Mitsubishi Corporation and Mitsubishi Motors are to deliver 635 Outlander PHEVs (plug-in hybrid electric vehicles) to Ukraine through MMC Ukraine, the local distributor of MMC vehicles and spare parts, around July this year. The Ukrainian governmentís decision to replace a portion of its current fleet of police cars with PHEVs is part of its overall promotion of more environmentally friendly policies. The order stems from the Ukrainian governmentís high evaluation of the Outlander PHEV. Cumulative sales of the Outlander PHEV in Europe since its launch in 2013 totaled 80,768 units at the end of 2016, and it has ranked as the best-selling plug-in hybrid vehicle for four years in a row. With a population of 45 million, Ukraine is one of the largest countries in Eastern Europe and the Commonwealth of Independent States, second only to Russia, and is expected to see notable economic growth over the medium to long term.
