Mitsubishi Motors Australia has announced an Armed Forces Discount program that offers current-serving and retired ADF members national fleet pricing on any Mitsubishi vehicle make or model.
A Mitsubishi Motors Australia spokesperson told CONTACT that this pricing was ordinarily reserved for businesses with 40+ vehicles, and so was a considerable discount for the retail purchaser.
“Our range extends from passenger vehicles such as the Outlander and Eclipse Cross to light commercial vehicles such as the Triton and Express van,” she said.
“All of these are eligible for the program, and vehicles bought under the program will also receive our warranty and capped-price service programs.
“Savings will vary depending on the national fleet pricing at the time, but can be up to approximately 17% off recommended retail prices.
“At the moment, for example, this would mean around $5500 off a Triton double cab currently priced at $36,990.”
The Mitsubishi Motors Australia spokesperson confirmed that, because DVA Gold Card TPI veterans are exempt from GST for car purchases, they can claim the fleet discount and then factor a further 10% off that?
“We do not have a current web page offering information on these kinds of discounts – we consider this to be “doing what’s right” and brief our dealers on the availability and to spread the word.
“Therefore, it may be worth telling your readers to visit their local Mitsubishi dealer, because there may also be additional discounts or incentives available that can actually increase their opportunities.
“For example a Triton GLX 2.4 priced at $40,000 could come down to around $30,000 with various discounts and incentives.”
“We think this is an important step forward in our commitment to supporting those who support our communities in times of need.”

CONTACT is awaiting responses from Mitsubishi HQ, who are on holidays currently.
CONTACT was not paid for this story placement.
We just thought it was a good-news story worth passing on (though currently having second thoughts).
