The manufacturer has appointed 13 of its retail network each of which will have a deciated Mitsubishi-trained EV salesman.
On each of the sites there will be a charging bay while it was also announced ALL dealerships will become EV service centres.
A spokesman for the marque said: ‘The nominated EV sales centre personnel will undertake an extensive training programme so that there is not only a very clear understanding of the demands and requirements of electric vehicles for consumers but also so that they understand the wider industry issues relating to the EV marketplace.
‘Their after-sales departments will also comply with compulsory manufacturer training and require specialist tools to enable the service and maintenance of electric vehicles. All of Mitsubishi’s 118 UK dealerships will be appointed as EV service centres as of today giving national after-sales coverage.’

Lance Bradley, the UK’s managing director, added: ‘This is a really exciting time for Mitsubishi Motors and having the first mass produced fully electric vehicle in the UK market puts us at the forefront of a new era in the automotive industry.
‘The Pure EV is now a reality. We are more than confident that our carefully selected 13 Mitsubishi EV Centres will provide excellent service and be able to offer the best advice to our retail and fleet customers.’
All Mitsubishi EV sales centres will have demonstrator vehicles that will be available for potential customers to properly test and experience what it is like to drive and ‘own’ an electric vehicle in real-life conditions.
