For fans of Mitsubishi’s venerable pick-up, it will surely come as no surprise to learn that the multi-award winning L200 was the UK’s best-selling pick-up truck in January 2019. Nearly one in every three pick-ups sold in the UK during January was a Mitsubishi L200.
Mitsubishi have confirmed to MotorMartin that sales of the Mitsubishi L200 in January totalled a rather impressive 1,237 units, compared to 636 in January 2018. This 88.6% increase in sales year on year has been accomplished in a Light Commercial Vehicle market that was up 13.4% with a total of 3,808 units sold in January 2019 compared to 3,359 last year.
Rob Lindley, Managing Director, Mitsubishi Motors in the UK explained to MotorMartin that, “The Mitsubishi L200 pick-up has been a backbone for small businesses in the UK for many years and continues to be a vital vehicle for Mitsubishi and our plans for growth for 2019 and beyond.”
The Mitsubishi L200 had a successful 2018 winning a fourth consecutive Auto Express ‘Pick-up of the Year’ award, along with being named ‘Best Pick-up’ by both Carbuyer and Parkers.
In January 2019 the Mitsubishi L200 Barbarian Black Edition was launched. Limited to just 500 vehicles, the Barbarian Black Edition features black wheels, black detailing and a choice of rear load area accessory: either a GST hardtop with sliding side windows, a Mitsubishi Fullbox or a black aluminium roll top with black sports bars. The L200 Barbarian Black Edition is priced from £30,500 CV OTR* and is on sale now.
*The Commercial Vehicle On The Road Price (CV OTR Price) excludes VAT (at 20%), but includes VED and First Registration Fee. Metallic/Pearlescent paint extra.
