Glasgow Airport has taken delivery of eight Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV 4x4 petrol/electric hybrid vehicles for use by its security, engineering, and airfield operations teams.

The vehicles were supplied by Arnold Clark Automobiles. The procurement, which cost more than GBP200,000 (USD264,159), included the installation of charging stations. As all electricity at Glasgow is generated using renewable resources, frequent recharging should deliver environmental benefits.

As hybrids, the Outlanders can be plugged into a standard three-pin outlet and fully charged within five hours, and a fast-charge option allows 80% within 25 minutes. In optimal driving conditions the vehicles have a fuel economy of up to 166 miles per gallon. Using electricity alone, they can reach up to 85 mph and travel for 30 miles without emissions.

The Outlanders replace vehicles that produced 200–230 g of CO 2 per km, according to Glasgow Airport managing director Mark Johnston.
