“With Earth Day coming up (April 22), it’s great to see this Outlander PHEV getting some attention,” Urso said. “And it can qualify for up to $7,500 in federal EV incentives.”

Johnny Legends Mitsubishi was named the district’s No. 1 Mitsubishi dealer for customer satisfaction. The dealer also topped the 2022 regional list for No. 1 Mitsubishi dealer for customer experience and finished third in the country for customer experience.
