United Motors Lanka PLC (UML) launched the Outlander PHEV, the new gasoline Outlander and the new L200 diesel double cab at the BMICH on Tuesday in front of a large gathering of representatives from Mitsubishi Motor Corporation Japan, top Corporates, Government officials, customers, media and the Ambassador of Japan.
In an era where all industries are exploring the possibilities of protecting nature and driving for sustainable productivity, Mitsubishi Motor Corporation, Japan has taken a giant leap by manufacturing the world’s first Plug in Hybrid Electric SUV combines Electric Vehicle (EV) technology nurtured through many years of intense research and development.
This concept empowers the vehicle to run in EV mode which ensures clean and highly efficient performance. The PHEV, however, does not solely rely on an electric battery; it contains a gasoline engine which provides propulsion and generates electricity making it not completely reliant on power of the charging facility alone.
The second model launched by UML, is the new gasoline seven seater Outlander for customers looking to master urban motoring. With its agile handling and spirited response the vehicle puts you in total control. The newly-refined Outlander is offered with a host of features and futuristic design. This variant too has been smartly designed to minimise the environmental impact through high fuel efficiency and low CO2 emissions.
The new L200 double cab is built with total agile drivability, comfort, utility, solid toughness and reliability in mind. Mitsubishi Motor Corporation has changed the entire design of the L200 giving it a fresh outlook in terms of its front and rear design. The L200 is built for maximum stability and traction. Its new rugged frame contributes to solid handling and its body is aerodynamically contoured for stable highway performance. The L200 is sturdily built to handle whatever challenges that come your way.
UML’s Group Chief Executive Officer Chanaka Yatawara said that the debut of these three models is during a very opportune time as the country and consumers are becoming more environmentally and performance conscious.
He added: “Mitsubishi Motors remains a valuable partner for the growth of the company and despite our smaller market size, globally we remain one of Mitsubishi’s valued distributors for having high market share in the Japanese brand new vehicle segment.”
UML has geared up its workshop facilities, spares and expertise to meet the increasing demand with branches in Anuradhapura, Kandy, Kurunegala, Matara, Nuwara Eliya, Ratnapura and Jaffna.
