Mitsubishi primes UK’s largest EV dealer network

All franchises will be equipped to sell and service electric cars as manufacturer prepares to launch first plug-in hybrid

Mitsubishi is creating what it claims is the UK’s largest dealer network for electric cars, in order to help meet growing demand for green cars and prepare for the launch of its new plug-in hybrid.

The company confirmed this week that all of its franchised dealers will become fully functioning Mitsubishi Electric Vehicle Centres from this month and by the end of March each will have two trained EV sales personnel as well as aftersales technicians.

The Japanese manufacturer launched the all-electric iMiEV supermini worldwide last year, while also debuting the MINICAB-MiEV, a light commercial electric van, on the Japanese market in November.

In addition, the company has indicated it will introduce its first plug-in hybrid vehicle to the UK within 18 months.

The car is likely to be a variant of the PX-MiEV II concept first displayed at the Tokyo motorshow last year, which appears to be modelled on the Outlander compact SUV. It is expected to boast a pure electric range of 31 miles and is widely expected to hit forecourts in April 2013.
