Mitsubishi reports rising orders from specialist fleet operators
Fleets place orders include the Environment Agency, National Grid and Ministry of Defence, with models spread across the Mitsubishi range and including the L200 pick-up, Outlander SUV and ASX crossover, which are being fitted with everything from blue-light conversions to chemical decontamination kits.
Mitsubishi says that the recent launch of the Outlander and the forthcoming low-emission Mirage supermini, coupled with the growing reputation of MSVO, means things are likely to get even busier.
Clive Messenger, head of fleet at Mitsubishi Motors in the UK, said: ‘The fact we are entering our busiest period ever proves Mitsubishi is now ticking all the boxes with specialist fleet operators everywhere.
‘Firstly, we now have an outstanding model line-up with a diverse range of powerful yet efficient engines, superb reliability and residuals and long warranties.
‘But the fact we offer our specialist fleet refits “in-house” is a major selling point. No-one knows better than the manufacturer what can and can’t be done, no third parties need to be involved and the whole process is nicely joined up.
‘As a result we are now enjoying a great deal of repeat business from fleet operators who have appreciated working with us and who know first hand we are able to make the whole process ordering, spec-ing and converting a vehicle hassle-free, seamless and cost-effective.’
