My thoughts on all things motoring, press releases, reviews & techie stuff, from around the world.
Please note that the pictures of vehicles within this blog are used as examples of the specific press releases, on occasions, due to the lack of available official pictures, examples are re-produced.
ANY AND ALL PROFANITIES WILL BE REMOVED AND THE PERSON/S RESPONSIBLE WILL BE BANNED, NO EXCEPTIONS.
I will try my best to provide detailed info on various cars and what is like to live with them, I have already produced a few for Jaguar-car-forums, I will do my best to be unbiased, but it will be hard for some cars. I will re-produce press releases and copy from other motoring news.

Mitsubishi Motors in the UK is celebrating a double triumph at the GreenFleet Awards 2015.
Mitsubishi Motors in the UK is celebrating a double triumph at the GreenFleet Awards. Not only did it repeat last year’s success by taking home the trophy for PHEV Manufacturer of the Year, but it also took the title of Outstanding Achievement, in recognition of its dedication and commitment to cleaner, greener driving.
The event, held at Edgbaston Cricket Ground and hosted by comedian Jo Caulfield, celebrates individuals and organisations that strive to reduce the environmental impact of fleet transport through innovation.
Mitsubishi faced competition from Mercedes-Benz, Volkswagen and Audi to be named PHEV Manufacturer of the Year, which recognises the manufacturer of either a commercial or consumer plug-in hybrid electric vehicle that has demonstrated the best performance and best suitability for purpose in its class.
Clive Messenger, Head of Corporate Sales, said: ‘What a night and what a fantastic result for Mitsubishi! We are all thrilled at this recognition. To be named PHEV Manufacturer of the Year for the second year running and also receive the prestigious honour of Outstanding Achievement is a resounding tribute and testament to all the hard work that has gone into designing, making and selling the Outlander PHEV.’
Richard Gooding, the Acting Editor of GreenFleet Magazine, said: ‘Mitsubishi has set the standard for PHEVs as well as the wider EV market. Sales of the Outlander PHEV are at a level that the industry could only have dreamt about when it was introduced two years ago. The Outlander’s technology and pricing strategy really has changed the market forever and the introduction of a revised and updated model can only boost the sector still further. Therefore, Mitsubishi is a very worthy winner of both the PHEV Manufacturer of the Year and the 2015 Outstanding Achievement Award.’
The Outlander PHEV is the UK’s most popular plug-in, with more than 12,500 of them having been sold here since it was launched last year.
The awards are just the latest of many for Mitsubishi Motors in the UK to add to its trophy cabinet. They include being named Low Carbon Manufacturer of the Year last month by the Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership, while in May this year the Outlander PHEV was named Best Ultra Low Emission Vehicle at the Fleet World Honours. Last year, the SUV won Diesel Car’s Best Alternative Fuel Vehicle award as well as Business Car’s Best Green Development trophy in its Techie Awards.
