After seeing Mitsubishi’s Super Bowl commercial, you may have asked yourself: is Mitsubishi really going to follow a pizza driver around? Believe it or not, the automaker saw the recent string of bad weather as a perfect opportunity to show off the Mitsubishi Outlander safety features.
The recent snow and ice in Boston made it very difficult for people to get around, especially pizza delivery drivers. According to Mitsubishi, that’s why it gave one lucky driver an opportunity to cruise around in the new Outlander during the Super Bowl, dubbed the “Protect the Pie” campaign.
“During the biggest sporting event of the year, nobody has more to lose than one man – not the players, not the coaches, not even the advertisers spending millions and millions of dollars,” read Mitsubishi’s ad. They said that, “we’re talking about the pizza guy.”
Granted, it may seem a little weird, but we think Mitsubishi has a point. With the lucky driver behind the wheel of the Outlander with Forward Collision Mitigation and other advanced technologies, accidents were easy to avoid. That’s one of the reasons the 2015 Outlander was recently named a Top Safety Pick + by the IIHS. Don’t worry; as far as the pizza deliveries went, they were all safety delivered.

The Outlander PHEV, which is getting a new facelift this year, is one of our best family offerings by Mitsubishi Motors. It’s the world’s first plug-in SUV, with an electric range of about 50 kilometers (31 miles) to help families make fewer trips to the pump.
The Motor Report claims that after tracking fuel consumption over a month of use on regional roads, including regular longer runs, the Outlander PHEV averaged 3.8 liters/100km. This comes out to be about 61 miles per gallon.
The Motor Report also applauded its versatile packaging, performance, and value. The Motor Report says that, “this very clever piece of advanced EV technology not only establishes a new affordable benchmark for sustainable motoring, but, by packaging these technologies into an SUV, Mitsubishi engineers have moved the goal posts significantly in drivability, ease-of-ownership, and practicality.”
