Mitsubishi eases demonstrator requirements

Mitsubishi UK is allowing its dealers to use pre-owned Shoguns as demonstration vehicles, in a bid to cut franchise costs.

The manufacturer has made several changes to its demonstrator policy. Average-sized dealers are now required to run just four new car demonstrators: Colt, Lancer, Outback and the L200 pick-up. 

Sales and marketing director Lance Bradley said retailers must have access to a current specification Shogun, but this may be a used vehicle.

Dealers will also need to have access from neighbouring Mitsubishi outlets to the new diesel-engined Grandis MPV and Colt CZC cabriolet, arriving this year.

Bradley said: “We used to require a change of demonstrators at six-months/6,000- miles but now dealers can decide that for themselves.”

Peugeot allows dealers to run used cars as demonstrators providing they are less than 12 months old and bought from Peugeot.
