It now plans to add more Outlander PHEVs to its 82-strong fleet as vehicles come up for replacement, moving towards a single-manufacturer fleet solution.

The vehicles, which have been supplied by Belmont Mitsubishi in Sighthill, Edinburgh, are used by its team of surveyors and contract managers, who cover the whole of Scotland and clock up between 40 and 120 miles a day on average.

Gordon McRae, fleet manager, Edinmore Contracts, said: “We were looking for something more economical and with lower emissions and lower Benefit in Kind tax. The PHEV was perfect.

“We tried all the competition but the PHEV came out on top. It gives us the perfect blend of economy, emissions, range and size. They look the part too.”

He added: “The guys who are driving them love them.”

McRae continued: “The vehicles are still new and so we’re still analysing the data but the early signs are very encouraging. We’re definitely making savings.

“I think we’ll now look to standardise our fleet by adding more Outlander PHEVs as our other cars come up for replacement.
