Hendra Holiday Park in Newquay has taken delivery of three Mitsubishi Outlander PHEVs, which will be run using renewable energy in an effort to cut company fleet emissions.
The new plug-in hybrids will be used by the directors and charged up with electricity generated by the company’s solar and wind farms.
Will Dexter, Financial Director at Hendra Holiday Park, said: “We are heavily into renewables, and as part of our commitment to long-term sustainability we wanted a vehicle that we could charge up from our renewable sources.”
The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV has an official electric range of 32.5 miles and offers 148mpg (official figure) when the internal combustion engine is taken into consideration.
Essentially, it is built to provide the best of both worlds; environmentally friendly electric driving with the comfort blanket of an ICE for longer journeys.
Apart from the environmental benefits and practicality the Outlander PHEV offers, the company was also drawn to the plug-in hybrid by it’s 5% BIK rate, which saves company car drivers thousands of pounds.
