UK Mitsubishi dealers get charged up for 2012

Mitsubishi Motors announced Wednesday that all its UK dealers shall henceforth be dubbed “Mitsubishi Electric Vehicle Centres.”

Put the electric kettle on, old chap. Mitsubishi Motors announced Wednesday that all its UK dealers shall henceforth be dubbed “Mitsubishi Electric Vehicle Centres.” By the end of March, each will have two specially trained EV sales personnel, as well as aftersales technicians, and each will have Mitsubishi i-MiEV demonstrator vehicles available for customers to properly test and experience over a prolonged period.

Lance Bradley, Mitsubishi’s UK Managing Director, touted the company’s plans to be the Sceptred Isle’s largest EV dealer network. “The Pure EV i-MiEV has now been a reality for the last year with lots more new plug-in hybrid technology and vehicles to come to the UK soon. Our dealer network will provide excellent service and be able to offer the best advice to our retail and fleet customers.

“Staff will undertake an extensive training programme so that there is a very clear understanding of the demands and requirements of electric vehicles for consumers, as well as an awareness of the wider industry issues relating to the EV marketplace.  Their after-sales departments will also comply with compulsory manufacturer training and require specialist tools to enable the service and maintenance of electric vehicles.”
