Mitsubishi celebrates London EV Sales Centre launch

24th January 2011 Print

Mitsubishi Motors in the UK is pleased to support the launch of the Motor Wey Putney EV Sales Centre at the London dealership on Friday, 28th January 2011. Motor Wey Putney is one of 13 flagship authorised Mitsubishi EV Sales Centres across the UK.

Flagship EV Sales Centres

Motor Wey Putney gained EV Sales Centre approval on 10th January 2011 after dealership personnel completed an extensive i-MiEV training programme. The training will enable staff to have a very clear understanding of the demands and requirements of owning an EV for consumers but also an understanding of the wider industry issues relating to the EV marketplace.

Demonstrator vehicles are already available at the EV Sales Centre for prospects to evaluate and experience what it is like to live with an electric vehicle in real-life conditions.

Electric Vehicle Hand-Overs

Motor Wey Putney celebrates EV Sales Centre status by combining the formal launch with an i-MiEV hand-over to Mitsubishi’s first pure EV customers based in London. A handful of customers that have already purchased i-MiEV will join both dealership and Mitsubishi Head Office staff for a brief presentation, refreshments and an official vehicle hand-over at midday on Friday 28th January.

The Colt Mid West Group’s Managing Director, Paul Brigden, said: "The official launch of Motor Wey Putney as a Mitsubishi EV Sales Centre on 28th January marks an extremely important event in the company's history. We are proud to be involved with a programme that demonstrates so well Mitsubishi's core values of innovation and cutting edge technology. The i-MiEV is a fantastic halo for the brand and underlines our bold environmental strategy under the banner of “Intelligent Motion.” We are delighted to be part of the EV programme and to hand-over the first mass-produced fully-electric vehicles to London based customers. Our fully trained personnel will be available throughout the event and ongoing to offer the best advice and service levels to both retail and fleet customers.”

Safe, Specified and Fashionable with Government Support of £5,000

The i-MiEV is more than just a zero-emissions car. Where other vehicles blend into the background, the i-MiEV oozes confidence and makes strong environmental and fashion statements in one go.

The Mitsubishi i-MiEV has also met a wide range of rigorous safety, emissions, performance and other standards set by The Office of Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) resulting in eligibility for the coalition government’s Plugged-In Car Grant (PICG) of £5,000.
