Mitsubishi Motors recently scored a hat-trick scooping three awards at this year’ prestigious What Van? Awards, demonstrating the success and appeal the brand has had in the commercial environment.
What Van? Is the UK’s leading title offering Light Commercial Vehicle buying and owning advice.The awards aim to reward the best products, companies and services for the ability to make life easier, cleaner, safer and more efficient for light commercial vehicle operators in the UK.
The all-new Mitsubishi L200 Series 5 picked up two accolades at the ceremony taking the title of ‘The Light Commercial Vehicle of the Year’ and the ‘Pick-up of the Year’.The Light Commercial Vehicle of the Year is awarded to a new vehicle that What Van? feels has made the biggest impact in relation to quality and efficiency as well as improving what is already out there is its sector.
The Mitsubishi L200 Series 5 ticked all the right boxes for What Van? with Editor, Paul Barker, describing the model as “simply the best vehicle in the segment.” He further went on to say that the L200 Series 5 “takes a big leap forward, particularly in areas of interior quality, ride, refinement, and vitally for business operators’ efficiency” and it “should stand Mitsubishi on solid ground” against future competitors.
However, the L200 Series 5 wasn’t the only model to pick up an award as the Outlander PHEV commercial variant won The Green Award, which recognises a vehicle, initiative, programme or product that is capable of improving businesses’ environmental credentials in the industry.
Paul Barker added that the Outlander PHEV is a “trail-blazing model” that was a “natural choice for the What Van? Green Award, thanks to its “zero emission motoring and an absence of range anxiety.”
On collecting the awards, Toby Marshall, Director of Sales and Marketing for the Mitsubishi brand in the UK said “It’s great to achieve one award but to receive three awards is fantastic.” When speaking about the two models he stated that the L200 Series 5 is “renowned for its 4x4 system, manoeuvrability, toughness and reliability” while the Outlander PHEV is a “unique proposition” “which we’re delighted has won the Green Award”
