First specialist Mitsubishi Shogun for Highways Agency is ready

Article by Anita Panait, on December 28, 2013

The first of 30 specialist Mitsubishi Shoguns built for the Highways Agency is now ready to take up its role. The vehicle is part of the 30 4x4 Shoguns that the agency ordered, and is the first to roll out from Mitsubishi’s state-of-the-art Specialist Vehicle Operations Centre in Cirencester that refits, adapts and upgrades standard models to meet individual client requirements.

The entire process takes around 24 hours to complete for each vehicle. Dan Pigot, Corporate Sales Manager at Mitsubishi Motors in the United Kingdom, said the latest agreement to supply specialist vehicles for the Highways Agency is testament to the quality of the Mitsubishi brand. “The Shogun is a tough, practical vehicle but it is also extremely comfortable to drive,” noting that that the feedback from the traffic officers is that they really like the Shoguns.”

He also noted that the Highways Agency is an existing customer, so it knows the vehicle will meet their high demands. The specialist Shoguns features light bars, grill lights and Highways Agency livery.

Earlier this year, Mitsubishi supplied 138 specialist vehicles to the Environment Agency, including 70 new Outlanders. Pigot remarked that the latest deal shows Mitsubishi is continuing to “tick all the boxes with specialist fleet operators.” He said that Mitsubishi’s ‘‘in-house’’ specialist fleet refits is a major selling point.

Dan added: ‘This latest contract shows Mitsubishi is continuing to tick all the boxes with specialist fleet operators. ‘The fact we offer our specialist fleet refits ‘‘in-house’’ is a major selling point. No-one knows better than the manufacturer what can and can’t be done, no third parties need to be involved and the whole process is nicely joined up.’[source: Mitsubishi Motors]
