Mitsubishi gears up for Commercial Vehicle Show

Mitsubishi will display a range of car-derived commercial vehicles at the CV Show, which takes place from 26-28 April at the Birmingham NEC. 

The Outlander PHEV commercial model will be on display along with the new L200 Series 5 and both short-wheelbase and long-wheelbase Shogun.

Clive Messenger, Head of Corporate Sales and Used Cars at Mitsubishi Motors in the UK, said: 'The recent launch of the L200 Series 5 has been extremely well received by both the retail and fleet operators. In addition to this popular model we are also looking forward to displaying our full range of car-derived commercial vehicles, which I think will be of interest to many fleet operators.

The CV Show is the largest road transport and logistics event held in Britain, providing commercial vehicle operators with far greater choice than any other exhibition serving the sector. The show attracts close to 20,000 business visitors and its central location in Birmingham ensures a nationwide attendance. 

Statistics from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) show Mitsubishi Motors in the UK has been the fastest-growing mainstream car manufacturer for the past three years. The company saw sales growth in passenger cars of 44 per cent in 2015 compared with the previous year, against an overall market up by six per cent.
