The Ukrainian police have become the world’s largest fleet operator for the Outlander PHEV.

Aiming to cut its environmental impact, the force began rolling out a fleet of Outlander PHEVs last year, replacing aged Russian-built AutoVAZ and UAZ patrol vehicles. The newcomers were delivered by local importer and distributor at a ceremony in Kiev.

The order follows an emissions trading agreement between Japanese companies under the Kyoto Protocol’s Green Investment Scheme. Mitsubishi has already deployed 507 i-MiEVs in Estonia in 2011.
