THE Mitsubishi network in the UK has expanded yet again with the arrival of a new dealership in Merseyside.

Eastham Mitsubishi has opened in New Chester Road, Eastham, Wirral, creating jobs and boasting a team with years of experience in the trade.

The man in charge, Dealer Principal Mark Pugh-Jones, has been in business for 35 years, and has 28 years experience running the Hyundai franchise. The new Mitsubishi showroom sits next to his Hyundai dealership in New Chester Road.

Mark has a team of three Mitsubishi sales staff and five in the after sales department.

He said: ‘We have been established for 35 years as a family business, we have got a very loyal customer base and we are very much looking forward to working with Mitsubishi.

‘Mitsubishi are well known for the quality of their vehicles and I think this will be a great partnership for both of us. We are the only Mitsubishi dealer in Merseyside so we are looking to attract customers from Liverpool and the surrounding area.

‘We have a new team of staff who have years of experience in the motor industry between them and they are excited about working with Mitsubishi.’

The new Eastham Mitsubishi showroom is in a prominent spot, with 40,000 cars passing by on the busy A41 every day.

And Mark joins the Mitsubishi network at an exciting time for the brand. Mitsubishi Motors in the UK is currently the country’s fastest growing manufacturer, selling around 40 per cent more cars so far this year than in the first seven months of 2012.

The new cars in the range, Mirage and Outlander, have played their part in this sales increase. Every car in the Mirage range boasts emissions figures of 100g/km of CO2 or lower, meaning no road tax is payable.

Designed from the ground up to be as environmentally friendly as possible, it’s fresh, funky and eye-catching too.

The New Outlander has class leading emissions and fuel economy, while comfort and refinement levels have been significantly enhanced over the previous model.

Sales of the award-winning L200 pick-up truck were also up. It is the number one best-selling retail pick-up. Sales to date are up 22 per cent on last year.

Lance Bradley, Managing Director of Mitsubishi Motors in the UK, said: ‘We are delighted to welcome Mark and his team to the Mitsubishi family.

‘Eastham Mitsubishi is joining our network at a very exciting time and we naturally wish the business every success.

We are attracting more and more customers to our brand, with great vehicles and first-class customer service, and we are sure Eastham Mitsubishi will become part of our success story very quickly.’
