A couple years back, Mitsubishi Motors North America began to partner with Record the Journey, a military veterans charity, to take part in the Rebelle Rally, an all-women’s off-road navigational event. Last year, two US Army veterans, Sergeant Major Rachael Ridenour and Sergeant Kristie Levy, drove an Outlander PHEV, named Electra, in the 2020 Rebelle Rally event. (The name Electra is a nod to the fact that the Outlander is the first-ever plug-in hybrid electric vehicle to take part in the Rebelle Rally event.)
The event, we should mention, is a grueling 10-day off-road challenge — the longest of its kind in the continental US. Piece of cake, right?
To commemorate the partnership of Mitsubishi and Record the Journey — and the beautiful way these veterans are working together to meet the challenges of the rally — Mitsubishi released a film called “Small Batch – Big Impact” that follows the story of Ridenour and Levy as they compete in the rally. You can check out the short film below:
“After two successful years of partnership with Record the Journey, it’s an honor to be able to celebrate our mutual achievements with this latest ‘Small Batch – Big Impact’ film,” said the chief operating officer of Mitsubishi Motors North America, Mark Chaffin. “We’ve made history together at the Rebelle, but I hope the real legacy of our collaboration will be increased awareness of, and greater support for, the valuable work that Rachael and the RTJ team do for military veterans every day.”
