When it comes to a working vehicle, professional photographers have very particular requirements. They need something robust and practical that will take them and their plentiful equipment the length and breadth of the country - and beyond - in comfort and often at deadline-pressing speeds.
Most importantly, because many photographers are freelancers working to tight budgets, running costs need to be as low as possible.
The Outlander PHEV Commercial is a full-sized plug-in hybrid 4x4 SUV with the financial footprint of a city car. You won't find many cars of any size boasting a CO2 figure of 41g/km. That could amount to a £400 per month saving on company car/fuel benefit tax over a typical midsize car.
EV Priority modes gives up to 33 miles of quiet, electric-only running. In series Hybrid mode, the Outlander's petrol engine runs as a generator, supplying electricity to the battery to power the motors. For high-speed work, Parallel Hybrid mode favours the petrol engine, with the electric motors chipping in when needed. Basically you're getting three cars in one.
Exempt from the London Congestion Charge, the Outlander PHEV is the only SUV-derived commercial eligible for the Government's Plug-In Van Grant. It's the UK's best-seling plug-in hybrid for a reason.
