“Looking forward in 2019, we continue to establish our brand as one focused on sport utility, technology and Super All-Wheel Control. A key part of that strategy is to build awareness of Outlander PHEV and its industry leading technology, price point and overall utility,” said Juyu Jeon, Vice President, Mitsubishi Motor Sales of Canada.
Outlander PHEV launched in 2018 to tremendous success quickly establishing itself as Canada’s top-selling plug-in hybrid helping to position Canada as the third top-selling country globally for the sale of Outlander PHEV and accounting for 24 per cent of plug-in hybrid sales in the country.
