Outlander takes to the Brecon Beacons

February 6, 2020

The Brecon Beacons National Park Authority has chosen the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Commercial for use by the warden team in charge of the maintenance and upkeep of the national park in south Wales.

Warden Manager Judith Harvey puts the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Commercial to work every day assisting the team with maintaining public rights of way, the upkeep of the popular footpaths and bridleways and the general conservation of the near 20,000 hectares of upland common that is owned by the authority.

This means that the UK’s best-selling plug-in hybrid is often tasked with towing a quad bike to remote locations and lugging fence posts about and is often filled with essential equipment such as leaf blowers and chainsaws.

The Brecon Beacons National Park covers 519 square miles with an expansive and diverse terrain popular with walkers, horse riders, mountain bikers, rock climbers and outdoor enthusiasts.

The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Commercial, with its twin-motor 4WD system and Super All-Wheel Control stability system, is more than capable of tackling the demands of the area, while also helping reduce noise and emissions thanks to its electric range of 28 miles, backed up with a petrol engine for additional pulling power or when traveling further afield where recharging isn’t always possible.

Judith Harvey said “The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Commercial is a delightful thing to drive. It’s very comfortable and very responsive and has proved amazing off-road and tows the necessary equipment that we need with ease. I can charge the vehicle at home and via the dedicated charge point that we have at the office, which is also equipped with solar panels, meaning we can charge the vehicle with renewable green energy whenever we can. The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV commercial has a low carbon output, which is important for the conservation body as we work to lower the carbon emissions of our fleet of vehicles. “

With close to 50,000 registered in the UK since 2014, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV remains the UK’s most popular plug-in vehicle with emissions of 46g/km and an official fuel economy figure of 139.7mpg and a real-world EV range of 28 miles.
