All Mitsubishi franchised dealers are to become fully functioning Mitsubishi Electric Vehicle Centres starting from January 2012.
By the end of March 2012, the approved dealerships will have two fully trained EV (Electric Vehicle) sales personnel as well as aftersales technicians.
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.
All Mitsubishi EV (Electric Vehicle) Centres will have Mitsubishi i-MiEV demonstrator vehicles that will be available for customers to properly test and experience over a prolonged period so they can discover for themselves what it is like to drive and ‘own’ an electric vehicle in real-life conditions.
This will make Mitsubishi the largest EV (Electric Vehicle) dealer network in the UK providing sales and after-sales coverage.Published 4 January 2012
