There has been a remarkable surge in demand for plug-in hybrid vehicles (PHEVs) in the UK over the last few years. This has helped contribute to around 90,000 plug-in electric vehicles now on the roads in 2016, with PHEV models offering excellent flexibility – featuring the benefits of a battery electric vehicle’s motor combined with the range of a petrol or diesel engine.

Mitsubishi's Outlander PHEV is one model that has certainly caught buyers' imaginations, with the SUV quickly overtaking the Nissan Leaf in terms of sales. Mitsubishi has sold more than 21,500 of its Outlander PHEVs, toppling the long established leader of the EV sales charts – the Nissan Leaf.
