Mitsubishi Vehicle Named 2019 Green SUV of the Year

When the 2018 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV first hit Mitsubishi dealerships earlier this year, the CUV’s arrival made waves throughout the automotive industry for all the right reasons. Now, the CUV is making headlines again because the vehicle has been named Green Car Journal’s 2019 Green SUV of the Year.

The winner of the 2019 Green SUV of the Year Award was announced during the Los Angeles Auto Show’s AutoMobility LA. The appeal of the Mitsubishi Outlander Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle is based largely on the vehicle’s EV efficiency and its capability as a sport utility automobile.
"The [Mitsubishi] Outlander PHEV is a halo vehicle for the brand and we're proud to bring consumers an efficient yet capable plug-in hybrid CUV at a price point they can afford," said Fred Diaz, president and chief executive officer, MMNA. "This prestigious award is a testament to the strong value of this vehicle, and reaffirms…the Mitsubishi brand’s] commitment to an electric-powered future made up of innovative and affordable vehicles."

"Today's SUV buyers increasingly want to drive more efficiently and with lower environmental impact, without giving up the style, convenience, and overall driving experience expected of a sport utility vehicle," said Ron Cogan, editor and publisher of Green Car Journal and “…[The Mitsubishi] Outlander PHEV meets these needs in a big way with its innovative series-parallel plug-in hybrid powertrain, all-electric driving capability, and exceptional SUV functionality. It has clearly earned its distinction as the 2019 Green SUV of the Year.”
