Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Award

Electric vehicles (especially SUVs) have started gaining popularity over the past few years, and for good reason. Car manufacturers have stressed the importance of being environmentally friendly as new energy and technology is being produced. Hybrid vehicles, plug-in SUVs, and eco-friendly cars are common descriptions as the evolution of the automobile continues. These vehicles are becoming more and more popular, not just because of their added benefits like fuel economy and improved driving range, but because they also benefit the environment.

One popular “green car” is the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV. This SUV was recently honored as the first-ever 2020 Family Green Car of the Year™ by Green Car Journal. The Green Car Journal is a monthly magazine publication that reviews and writes about green vehicles and environmentally friendly energy and technologies.

Offering a fuel economy of 74 MGEe* is a huge bonus to go along with features like forward collision mitigation with pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, blind spot warning with lane change assist and rear cross traffic alert, and a rearview camera – all standard. On the high-end GT S-AWC trim, consumers can also get adaptive cruise control and a multi-view camera.
