A Fleet Van Judge commented:

“The L200 won this award thanks to its greater range of derivatives and load bed options and level of availability. Mitsubishi offers all the options for all fleet requirements. The L200 is also strong on residual values, comes with a big range of horsepower options and enjoys strong back-up from the Mitsubishi dealer network. Add in competitive pricing and the L200 justifies its place as Pick-up of the Year.”

Lance Bradley, Mitsubishi Motors in the UK’s Managing Director added:

“We’re delighted that the Mitsubishi L200 has again retained the Fleet Van Pick-up of the Year title, but it’s easy to see why. The versatility of the range is unmatched, with everything from practical and functional single-cabs through to powerful lifestyle double-cabs. It is an honour for us to receive this award as it firmly establishes the L200 as the clear favourite among commercial vehicle operators.
