Sa Kaeo, 22 November 2021: Mitsubishi Motors (Thailand) Co., Ltd., in collaboration with Mitsubishi Motors Thailand Foundation, joined a caravan of Mitsubishi Triton, Mitsubishi Pajero Sport and Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV to participate in a forest planting activity on an area of 40 Rai, reinforcing the company's leadership in electric vehicles with the power distribution feature, Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV can travel in any areas. In this activity, the company brought a Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV to assist in supplying electricity to various electrical appliances with a maximum power output of 1,500 watts, facilitating all activities though being in the middle of the forest.
This reforestation activity is part of Mitsubishi Motors Thailand's ”60 Years 60 Rai” Reforestation project, enhancing the company’s commitment to reduce CO2 in collaboration with the Royal Forestry Department (RFD), Thailand Greenhouse Gas Management Organization (TGO), and the Community Forest Committee in joining forces to increase green areas in Ban Na Ngam Community Forest Project, Sa Kaeo Province.
