Mitsubishi Motor Philippines Corporation (MMPC), the official business unit of Mitsubishi in the country, delivered an Outlander PHEV to Peter Wilson, CEO of Solarius Energy. The turnover ceremony was a success thanks to MMPC’s dealer partner, Peak Motor Philippines Inc.

The Mitsubishi Outlander is a plug-in hybrid compact crossover launched by MMPC in the country last September 2020. As a committed solar company like Solarius Energy, the Mitsubishi Outlander is undoubtedly a good vehicle option as both hand out efforts to provide sustainable energy for the future.

In global markets such as Australia, North America, and Japan, Mitsubishi Motor managed to sell over 260,000 units of the Outlander PHEV already. Moreover, the Outlander is the best-selling PHEV crossover in Europe with a total of 26,673 units delivered last 2020.
