luscombe openLUSCOMBE Mitsubishi has celebrated its official opening with some stunning one-off special offers for customers. 

The new dealership in Leeds has opened its doors on the site of the former Robert Bowett showroom in Low Road, Hunslet.

The showroom was officially opened in a ribbon-cutting ceremony with Managing Director Robin Luscombe and Toby Marshall, Sales and Marketing Director at Mitsubishi Motors in the UK.

And to mark their arrival Luscombe Mitsubishi hosted a “Man from Mitsubishi” event over the weekend, where a senior representative from the carmaker’s Cirencester HQ was authorised to sign-off exceptional deals on models across the Mitsubishi range, which includes the fantastic all-new supermini Mirage, the latest generation Outlander SUV and multi award-winning L200 pick-up.

Luscombe Motors has now purchased the whole of Robert Bowett Motoring, having acquired the Suzuki franchise from the company in 2010.

Managing Director Robin Luscombe is very much looking forward to welcoming customers old and new to the Mitsubishi brand.

He said: ‘We’ve already had a great start with Mitsubishi and I’m sure it will be a good relationship for both of us. We pride ourselves on customer service and straight-talking sales staff because that’s what people want.

‘We are a small, privately owned dealership and I know the importance of getting out of the office and meeting people face to face. We’ve put ourselves on the map with this launch event and let people know we are here so there’s been a lot of curiosity from customers and it will build from there.’

The addition of the Mitsubishi franchise to Luscombe Motors has almost doubled the number of staff employed at the company, which now has 34 people on the payroll.

A smart new showroom shows off the Mitsubishi range to its best advantage, and the dealership is in a great location, handily placed close to three busy motorways.

Excellent customer service

Toby Marshall, Sales and Marketing Director at Mitsubishi Motors in the UK, said: ‘Robin Luscombe has got a great reputation for giving excellent customer service winning numerous industry awards. We are very much focused on customer service and know Robin will deliver a brilliant experience to Mitsubishi customers.’

Mr Luscombe joins the Mitsubishi network at an exciting time for the brand. Mitsubishi Motors in the UK is currently the country’s fastest growing manufacturer, with sales up over 40 per cent so far this year.

Two new arrivals – the all-new Outlander and the all-new Mirage – have given the company the opportunity to increase its profile and attract more customers.

New Outlander is the latest incarnation of Mitsubishi Motors’ highly regarded and versatile SUV, while Mirage is the compact and clever city car that’s so efficient it has zero road tax across the whole range.

Sales of the rugged and reliable L200 pick-up truck also continue to grow, and are running 22 per cent up on last year.
