Lancashire Constabulary choose diesel Mitsubishi Outlander

The Lancashire Constabulary has ordered four Mitsubishi Outlanders powered by the 2.2 liter diesel engine option for their "rural patrol" vehicles. According to Chris Malkin, Fleet & Transport Manager from Lancashire Constabulary, the Outlander won out due to its "high mpg with low carbon emissions, a reduced environmental impact and low running costs." Malkin also mentioned the Outlander's solid safety scores and high level of standard equipment as reasons that it was chosen.

We're not sure what vehicles were replaced, but we can be sure that the emissions were reduced in the switch. Each year, emissions standards get tougher so the air is cleaner as older fleets are replaced with new vehicles.
