Hi-tech Outlander targets low CO2

16 February 2012

Mitsubishi will unveil a new version of the Outlander next month that will herald the company's first plug-in hybrid car due in 2013.
 
The replacement for the current Outlander will be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in March, with Mitsubishi targeting sub-130g/km CO2 emissions for some versions, achieved through additional fuel-saving technology as well as a new 2.2-litre diesel engine developed in-house.  Mitsubishi will later use the pioneering EV development it has carried out with the I-Miev electric car to develop a plug-in petrol hybrid version of the Outlander, with a likely range of 500 miles and target CO2 emission lower than 50g/km.
 
Although specification for individual markets in Europe are yet to be finalised, two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive versions will be available, as well as stop-start technology.  Mitsubishi says the new Outlander will also be equipped with an ďeco-friendly driving systemĒ that includes a maximum efficiency indicator. Accordingly, the driver can choose to drive at maximum efficiency to enhance actual fuel consumption of the vehicle.
 
Collision mitigation technology (with autonomous emergency braking), a lane departure warning, and adaptice cruise control have been developed for the new Outlander, as well as the latest xenon headlamp technology.  The practicality of the Outlander will be enhanced for the new model, with third-row seating continuing, a flat load area with seats folded and the option of a power tailgate.
 
Prices and exact specification will be revealed closer to the car's launch in 2013

Signs of stability in new car market

07 February 2012

Fleet sales continued to dominate the new car market in January, accounting for 58.9% of the market with 75,893 units out of 128,853 new cars registered.
 
January typically accounts for around 7% of annual registrations, ahead of the key March market, which typically represents 18% of the annual market and approximately 65% of volumes registered in quarter one.
 
"The January new car market held firm with 128,853 registrations, marginally up on January 2011, a welcome sign of stability in uncertain economic times," said Paul Everitt, SMMT chief executive.  "2012 is set to be an exciting year with record numbers of new models coming to market filled with innovative technology that will save the motorist fuel, enhance comfort and further increase levels of safety and security.  However, to maintain market stability, government must act decisively and deliver much needed confidence to businesses and consumers."
 
Demand for diesel cars continues to rise and its market share moved from 50.5% a year ago to 53.7%, as motorists look to ensure increased fuel efficiency.  Meanwhile, registrations of alternatively fuelled vehicles rose by 17.7% in the month and accounted for 1.6% of the market, mirroring the record levels confirmed in November and December 2011, on the back of new products entering the market.
 
ďIt is positive that new car sales were up in January, with growth recorded in both the private and fleet markets,Ē said Sue Robinson, director of the RMI National Franchised Dealers Association (NFDA) which represents franchised car and commercial vehicle retailers across the UK, commenting on the SMMTís new car registration figures.
