Mitsubishi motors to reopen UK showrooms

Mitsubishi Motors

Sales showrooms across the Mitsubishi Motors dealer network in England are reopening from June 1 following the government’s easing of restrictions implemented in response to the Coronavirus crisis.

While the Cirencester-headquartered company says there will be no easing in the levels of vigilance and protection put in place by its dealers in England. A special programme of safety measures has been introduced to help dealers do everything possible to protect their customers and staff from infection, including reconfigured dealership spaces with sufficient social distancing space around cars inside and outside of the showroom; defined routes through the premises; clear signage and one way systems for both staff and customers

An enhanced cleaning schedule with a focus on high-traffic, high-risk areas including the sanitisation of static and test drive vehicles touchpoints after each customer (e.g. steering wheel, door handles, gear knobs, dashboard etc.) as well as those of showroom touchpoints such as door handles, toilets and desks.

Unaccompanied test drives wherever possible, in line with DVLA regulations and individual dealers’ insurance requirement

Collection and delivery service of customer vehicles for maintenance or repair, MOT inspection, collection of part exchanges and delivery of new vehicles, in line with best sanitisation and safety practice.

Customers are encouraged to contact their local dealers to find out more about the measures they have put in place or if they have any specific questions or requests.

Rob Lindley, Managing Director, Mitsubishi Motors in the UK said: “The safety and wellbeing of our customers, our dealer partners and our staff is of the utmost importance so while we’re delighted that the wheels of our dealer network in England can start turning again we want this to happen in the safest and most responsible way possible.
