The Aon Corporation is the country’s largest insurance broker, boasting a network of 75 offices, with more than 760 across the North and South Islands and when the Outlander first came out, it proved to be the ideal vehicle for Aon. However, Outlanders aren’t the only Mitsubishis in Aon’s fleet, with Triton utes, ASXs and Lancers joining the 42 Outlanders.
Before the Defence Force selected a fleet vehicle, Mitsubishi Triton and its competitors were subjected to a week-long, grueling, army training challenge. It was no surprise to us that Triton came out on top, selected for its winning off-road performance, generous cab space, low operating costs and superior pulling power.
Global infrastructure and environmental services provider Cardno is one of a growing number of NZ-based companies to fleet test the fuel-saving, emission-reducing technology of Mitsubishi’s Outlander PHEV. Cardno’s Wellington-based team has been running two Outlander PHEVs on lease with a view to rolling them out across its national fleet.
When you have thousands of vehicles, there are thousands of ways to save money running them. No-one knows this better than the Government. Its All of Government procurement experts, operating the country’s biggest fleet, are crucially interested in Total Cost of Ownership over five years/100,000km. Mitsubishi, a contracted supplier to the Government, figures strongly in the procurement team’s latest 500-vehicle review, with vehicles rated “lowest TCO” heading 13 significant categories.
The Building & Construction Industry Training Organisation sets standards, arranges training, and develops qualifications. Seeking to maintain high standards and future-proof qualifications, 140 staff in 14 offices use Outlanders to get on site to guide employers and support apprentices. BCITO put more than 170 into its nationwide fleet, mostly LS 4WD. Each is fitted out with a custom-built ‘office’ laptop and printer, plus safety gear for visiting construction sites.
