Mitsubishi Motors Delivers Outlander PHEV and i-MiEV to Department of Environment and Natural Resources in the Philippines

TOKYO, June 29, 2017 - (JCN Newswire) - Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) announced today that it has delivered five Outlander PHEVs (Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles) and five i-MiEV electric vehicles to the Philippine Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), along with four electric vehicle quick charger units.

Representatives from the Philippine government and guests attended the delivery ceremony held at the World Trade Center in Pasay City. The vehicles will be utilized by the DENR and other government agencies for business use.

The deliveries form part of the Memorandum of Understanding signed in February between MMC and DENR regarding a joint study into environmental load reduction using electric technologies used in two of MMC's environment-friendly models, the Outlander PHEV and i-MiEV.

MMC plans on reaching out to institutions including government administrations, universities, and electric companies to join the project, which aims to reduce CO2 emissions and traffic congestion in the Philippines.

Osamu Masuko, CEO of MMC, said: "The delivery of these vehicles and charger units is a vote of confidence in the electric technologies of Mitsubishi Motors. We are pleased to be playing our part in helping reducing emissions in partnership with the DENR in the Philippines."

The presentation ceremony coincided with the first ASEAN Electric & Hybrid Vehicles Summit (hosted by BOI(1), CAMPI(2), eVAP(3), and MERALCO(4)), a two-day event held from June 29th to June 30th. The inaugural summit theme is "Strengthening Partnerships for Greener Transport in ASEAN and Beyond."
