When it comes to making safe vehicles, every automaker wants to stand out. So many car commercials and advertisements focus on the safety features a vehicle can provide, but how many of the automakers behind those marketing campaigns can claim they won the first-ever 2020 Family Green Car of the Year™ by Green Car Journal? Not many. Know who can? It’s Mitsubishi Motors. Recently, the Green Car Journal held its annual Green Car Awards™ to highlight the best environmentally friendly new model year vehicles and the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV took home two awards that make it the perfect choice for families and the environment.
If you haven’t heard of the Green Car Journal, it’s a magazine publication with a large focus on green vehicles and environmentally friendly energy and technologies – automotive or otherwise. Every year, the publication hosts the Green Cars Awards program and recognizes automakers for their efforts and their accomplishments in producing vehicles in the eco-friendly car segment. Along with an interest in environmentally-positive vehicles, like any publication focuses on the automotive industry, the Green Car Journal gives consumers reviews and runs this award program to inform consumers of the best options.
The Green Car Awards were held at the San Antonio Auto & Truck Show. For the first time ever, the Green Car Journal held a Family Green Car of the Year™ award, and the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV was the obvious choice for its assortment of safety features that helps to keep families safe. Standard in the lineup, consumers get 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. With only two options, consumers can splurge a little more for the GT S-AWC trim and add on adaptive cruise control and a multi-view camera.
As mentioned before, the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV received two awards. Along with the first-time 2020 Family Green Car of the Year award, the Outlander PHEV also received the 2020 Green Car Product of Excellence™. What a way to stand out above the auto market.
“The Outlander PHEV remains the efficient family vehicle to beat, and it continues to underscore Mitsubishi’s longstanding commitment to electrified mobility…Winning Green Car Journal’s first-ever Green Family Car of the Year award is a great honor and recognition of Outlander PHEV’s potent combination of reliability, efficiency and value.” – Jim Sweeting, Sales Manager, Central Region, Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. (MMNA), upon receiving the award at the San Antonio Auto & Truck Show.
With an EPA estimated 74 MPGe and the ability to travel 22 miles on electricity alone, the Outlander PHEV offers consumers many savings on trips to the gas station. Speaking of savings, tax season is right around the corner. When purchasing a new Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, consumers don’t only get to enjoy the savings of spending less on fuel, but they can also save up to $5,836 with available state and federal rebates. Either way, it’s a win-win.
