Plugin Electric Cars – UK Top 20 – 2015
The Mitsubishi Outlander is the most popular plug in vehicle in the UK according to the RAC Foundation report on car grant schemes for plug in vehicles.
This Japanese hybrid plug in recorded 12,066 registrations from a total of 35.241. That exceeds a third of all plug ins sold in the UK.
In 2016, Mitsubishi are bringing out a new version of the Outlander PHEV which enthusiasts are looking forward to.
The Outlander has extended its lead over the Nissan Leaf to make it the most popular ultra green car in the UK.
The Outlanders success is said to be due to a high profile marketing campaign, a good travelling range and competitive pricing competing well with the diesel equivalent.
The competitive price of the Outlander is dependent on the grant scheme provided by the government. The ultra green cars will have to compete on their own merits once the scheme is withdrawn.
The Nissan Leaf was the second most popular car with a total of
9,310 registrations. Nissan are introducing a 30kWh model which could help bump up sales.
