Mitsubishi has delivered the first car bought using its Buy Online service, three weeks after the order was placed.
Antony Deane purchased a Mitsubishi ASX 3 on his smartphone while on a coffee break at work.
The purchase took less than 20 minutes to complete by following the simple-to-use steps of the service.
A dedicated Mitsubishi Buy Online support team determined the delivery of the ASX from Grosvenor Garage Mitsubishi in Tunbridge Wells. Mitsubishi Buy Online also offers the option of home delivery.
Deane also took advantage of the option to part-exchange his existing car via the trade-in valuation facility offered by Mitsubishi Buy Online, dropping his previous car off with Grosvenor Garage Mitsubishi and driving away in his new one.
He said: “I knew I wanted the Mitsubishi ASX and when I saw that I could actually buy it through the website, I decided to save time and go via Mitsubishi Buy Online. It did feel a little strange at first, as one minute I was having a coffee and the next I was buying a car on my phone, but it was all very straightforward and really well explained."
Lance Bradley, managing director of Mitsubishi Motors in the UK, added: “We’re delighted that the first Mitsubishi Buy Online customer has taken delivery of his new Mitsubishi.
"Mr Deane’s decision to use our new online buying facility and his experience throughout his purchase epitomise why we invested in Mitsubishi Buy Online.
"An ever-increasing amount of car buyers are considering purchasing their next new vehicle online and giving our customers the option to do this, in addition to providing them with a traditional dealer network, is essential in making their Mitsubishi experience the very best it can be.”
Developed in conjunction with Rockar, Mitsubishi Buy Online allows customers to access the Mitsubishi showroom in the comfort of their own home at any time of day.
All current Mitsubishi models are included in the programme and customers also benefit from the same national offers that are available through the brand’s dealerships.
