RECENT figures revealed that sales SUVs (Sports Utility Vehicles) are currently outstripping electric vehicles to the tune of 37 to one.
This is music to the ears of the team at Westaway Motors in Moulton Park, Northampton where Mitsubishi models offer the best of both worlds for business and personal customers.
Westaway Motors is able to provide attractive contract hire rates for business and personal customers and all vehicles are available for test drives.
Three models of the Japanese manufacturer are particularly catching the eye.
Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV
This is a revolutionary plug-in Hybrid SUV. It has a 13.8 kWh capacity battery and a new fuel-efficient 2.4-litre petrol engine. It is capable of running for 28 miles on pure electric and, of course, attracts lower company car tax rates and no congestion charges.
Performance is optimised on the world's first Plug-in Hybrid SUV by having motors and both front and rear axles working in harmony.
The Outlander PHEV has a distinctive front grille, alloy wheels and aerodynamic shape, comfortable cabin seats for five people, a high level of features and incorporates advanced technology. It is responsive and powerful providing a smooth and efficient ride.
It can be charged at any UK mains socket, or any of the thousands of UK public charge points or owners can install as dedicated charge point.
Mitsubishi Shogun Sport
This is a rugged off-road, genuine seven-seater SUV that appeals to, and meets the demands of, a specific group of customers who enjoy the outdoor life.
It is powered by a 2.4-litre turbo diesel engine with 131 horsepower, mated to an eight-speed automatic gearbox and a Super Select 4WD system combined with cutting-edge technology that enables it to meet the toughest of challenges.
The front and rear bumpers are high off the ground to leave plenty of clearance for off-roading, and it has good towing capacity.
Add on Mitsubishi's fantastic reliability record so owners can be confident there won't be constant trips to the dealership.
The Shogun Sport is built to shine and stand out from the crowd.
Mitsubishi new Series 6 L200
The L200 has been Mitsubishi's workhorse pick-up truck for more than 40 years and this sixth generation has received a complete exterior makeover.
It is rugged on the outside, comfortable inside, and built for tough performance even on the roughest of terrains. It has a switchable four-wheel drive that can be engaged on the move.
Powered by a 2.2-litre MIVEC 16-valve intercooled turbocharged Common Rail Direct Injection diesel engine, the new Series 6 L200 is built with a raft of advanced safety technologies to keep its occupants safe and secure.
The latest version continues and enhances the 40-year heritage of the model doing exactly what it was originally built for - carrying a lot of material and transporting five people in comfort.
Westaway Motors is a family run business providing a high quality service for more than 75 years. Highly trained Mitsubishi technicians using genuine parts maintain customers' vehicles.
