Mitsubishi NZ orders 5000 Tritons before feebate commences
Mitsubishi Motors New Zealand (MMNZ) has been prioritised for delivery of 5000 2022 model Triton utes through November and December to support strong demand. “We are fully committed to supporting ute customers across the country and are delighted to be in a position to meet the strong demand we have received for this vehicle with a huge delivery before the end of the year,” says MMNZ chief operating officer Daniel Cook. “Over half of our Triton customers work in infrastructure, trade or agriculture, so we are extremely pleased to be able to support them so robustly in the face of ongoing global supply issues and shipping delays, as well as the price rises that will result from the Government’s feebate scheme that kicks-off in January. “We hope this will provide some peace of mind in challenging times.” Strong support Packed with a higher level of performance and safety technology than ever before, the new Triton range is the most capable yet. “This is the best-equipped Triton we have ever introduced,” says Reece Congdon, MMNZ head of Marketing and Corporate Affairs. “The 2022 model offers a whole lot more for those who demand more.” Safety is at the forefront of the new Triton range, from the bottom up. Forward Collision Mitigation, Lane Departure Warning, auto-dimming rear-view mirror, rain-sensing front wipers, front fog lamps and light-sensing headlamps are all available as standard in the GLX Club Cab and Double Cab Chassis base models through to the premium 4WD Double Cab VRX. GLX-R and VRX models benefit from additional safety features such as Blind Spot Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert and an Ultrasonic Miss-acceleration Mitigation System, as well as front and rear parking sensors and auto high beam. Off-road handling The new GLX-R 4WD models are now better equipped to tackle challenging conditions – on par with the top-of-the-range VRX 4WD – with the addition of Mitsubishi’s Super Select II 4WD system alongside Off-Road Mode and Hill Descent Control. Super Select II features four drive modes to enable high performance in a range of driving conditions, from fuel-efficient rear-wheel drive on dry, sealed roads, to all-wheel drive for added traction in slippery conditions. The centre diff can also be locked in high and low range for more challenging off-road driving, or when navigating steep inclines where control and precision are essential. VRX 2WD is the new black A new 2WD VRX Black Edition features a leatherappointed interior with Mitsubishi’s formidable allblack exterior styling, bringing exceptional value for 2WD customers. “Our Black Edition 4WD model has proved hugely popular, so we are pleased to introduce the same distinctive sense of style to our 2WD range for the first time,” says Reece. The Black Edition encompasses a black dynamic shield front design with a black grille, black bumper garnish and headlamp surround, black 18” alloys, black side steps, door mirrors and handles, black tailgate garnish and rear step bumper, plus Black Edition badging on each fender. “With an unprecedented volume about to hit our shores in the coming quarter, now is the time for customers to secure an upgraded Triton before the feebate scheme hits in January,” says Daniel.
