UK Police Receiving Mitsubishi Vehicles

The UK’s police forces will see its vehicle fleet being updated with Mitsubishi all-wheel-drive cars, as the automotive producer has reached an agreement with the National Policing Improvement Agency and the National Association of Police Fleet Managers.

Law enforcers will be able to ride in models such as the Shogun, the L200, both of which are now among the best in their class in terms of CO2 emissions. In addition to the larger 4x4, the Police will also receive the economical Outlander and the new compact crossover ASX.

Mitsubishi has been supplying vehicles to the UK’s police forces since the turn of the decade and vehicles such as Shogun and L200 have developed a strong pedigree for a variety of operational uses in the specialist arena,” stated the press release.

The vehicles will be modified to cater for the needs of law enforcers by the Mitsubishi Specialist Vehicle Operation Centre (MSVO), based in the Cotswolds.

The Mitsubishi Specialist Vehicle Operation Centre (MSVO), based in the Cotswolds, offers a ‘one-stop-shop’ and provides a unique and individual cradle-to-grave service equipping vehicles to a high standard but at the same time simplifies the customer’s supply chain process, cuts costs and reduces lead times. Mitsubishi has considerable experience in offering class-leading sales and after-sales support to the blue light market place. Their understanding of the operational needs of the Police market structure and flexible attitude means that they are ideally positioned to find the right solution for specialist vehicle requirements,” stated the press release.
