Mitsubishi reveals new Outlander PHEV Juro special edition

Mitsubishi has revealed the Juro, a new special edition version of its Outlander PHEV SUV.

It sits above the mid-range GX3h+ model, and offers buyers a new touchscreen infotainment system, ‘Outlander’ bonnet lettering and satellite navigation.

These features are offered along with those found on the standard GX3h+, which include 18-inch alloys, two-zone climate control, parking sensors and automatic lights and wipers.

However, while the Juro features extra equipment over the regular car, it doesn’t cost any more money. After the £2,500 government grant has been factored in, the Juro costs £32,749.

The Juro’s economy figures are the same as the GX3h+, meaning an all-electric range of 32 miles as well as a fuel consumption figure of 156.9mpg on the combined cycle. Carbon dioxide emissions stand at 42g/km.

Because of this, the lowest rate of company car tax (seven per cent) applies to the Outlander PHEV Juro. It also occupies the lowest VED tax band, making it tax-free if purchased before April 2017. Cars bought after this point will cost £140 per year in tax.

The Outlander’s economical capabilities have helped it to become the UK’s favourite plug-in vehicle – with more than 25,000 units sold since the car first came to market in 2014. The Outlander PHEV now accounts for around 50 per cent of all plug-in hybrid vehicles on the road in Britain.

The Outlander PHEV Juro will be on sale in the UK from early November.
