The Mitsubishi Shogun has become a well-established and trusted brand since the model’s introduction in 1982. Known as the Shogun in the UK and the Pajero or Montero in other countries, over 4 million of these vehicles have been sold worldwide since its launch because of the vehicles reputation, individuality, performance and ruggedness. With the pedigree and reputation it is no surprise that UK police forces now have the option of specifying the Shogun for their fleet of patrol vehicles.
At the 29th National Association of Police Fleet Managers’ Conference and Exhibition to be held on the 20th and 21st of August at Wroughton Airfield, Near Swindon, Wilts, the Mitsubishi Motors stand will feature prominently. On display will be the new Space Star 1.9 Diesel, Carisma Diesel, L200 Pick-Up, Evolution VII, Shogun and Shogun Sport models.
All police fleet managers and key decision-makers will attend the exhibition from the emergency services. The Shogun and Shogun Sport will be presented in the Police livery. The Shogun has the choice of 2-wheel and 4-wheel drive with the ability to perform in all weather conditions on and off-road. Two power units are available in the Shogun range. Both are low emission environmentally considerate units - a 3.2 DI-D direct injection diesel engine and a 3.5 GDI direct injection petrol unit.
A monocoque bodyshell is used by the Shogun, which means that the structure consists of one complete lightweight shell with a built in frame for maximum strength for maximum possible occupant safety.
Mitsubishi vehicles have as standard a 3 year unlimited mileage warranty very important for reducing running costs and minimising down time on high profile police vehicles.
Mitsubishi’s strategy is to have all of their vehicles on display at the Police Fleet Exhibition, eligible for the Police Information Technology Organisation Agreement in the very near future.Published 8 August 2002
