Mitsubishi Motors in the UK is encouraging the take up of ultra-low emission vehicles by offering up to £4,500 off the price of a new Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV if customers agree to have their old trade-in vehicle scrapped.
Any trade-in vehicle, registered before January 1 2013, is eligible for the offer, subject to terms and conditions. Vehicle must have been registered in the new car customer’s name for at least 90 days prior to the new vehicle registration date.
To make upgrading to a brand new Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV as affordable as possible for owners, competitive 6.9% APR PCP and HP finance rates are also currently available in conjunction with the scrappage offer, which will run until 27 March 2020 at participating Mitsubishi dealers.
Rob Lindley, Managing Director of Mitsubishi Motors in the UK, commented, “Moving to a new, ultra-low emission vehicle is an aspiration many people have but it’s a big financial step for many owners of older vehicles. Our scrappage offer, combined with competitive finance offers, puts a practical, versatile and low-emission vehicle within reach for many more people. If we were able to combine this offer with some form of compelling government-backed support for plug-in hybrids, it would all help put the government’s Road to Zero ambitions back on track.”
With nearly 50,000 registered in the UK since 2014, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is the UK’s most popular plug-in vehicle. Revised in 2019, it now has a real-world EV range of 28 miles and achieves 134mpg (WLTP). A recent survey of Outlander PHEV customers reveals that half their average weekly mileage is driven in electric mode, with 68% charging at least once per day and 90% charging several times (2-3 times or more) per week. 83% would recommend an Outlander PHEV to family and friends and 25% say they are considering a pure electric vehicle for the next vehicle, making it a true gateway vehicle towards an all-EV future and an important step on the road to zero.
