SEVEN Mitsubishi dealers from across Australia have been honoured with the company’s highest accolade, the Distinguished Dealer Award, following a year of strong performance throughout the Mitsubishi Motors Australia Limited (MMAL) network.

The 2024 awards include a mix of veteran winners and dealerships making a return to the winner’s list after several years.

Wanneroo Mitsubishi (WA) has secured its seventh Distinguished Dealer Award, following a clean sweep of the 2024 Diamond Awards.

Also celebrating its seventh award was Wayville Mitsubishi (SA), achieving back-to-back wins after another strong performance.

Australian Motors Mitsubishi Morphett Vale (SA) has earned its fourth award in the past five years, with the Australian Motors Group winning the Distinguished Dealer Award eleven times in the past decade.

Berwick Mitsubishi (VIC) has returned to the winner’s list for the first time since 2020, having won all four Diamond Awards earlier in 2024.

Blue Ribbon Mitsubishi in Yamanto, Queensland, has received its second Distinguished Dealer Award, the dealership’s first since 2011.

Bendigo Mitsubishi (VIC) also made a return to the list in 2024 after first claiming the award in 2018.

Dalby Mitsubishi (QLD), having joined the Mitsubishi network in 2018, has claimed its first Distinguished Dealer Award following a strong performance.

Along with Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) CEO Takao Kato, MMAL executive and senior management hosted dealer principals and senior dealership delegates at the annual national dealer conference, where the winners were announced.

MMAL CEO Shaun Westcott and other executives were present in Melbourne to personally congratulate the seven winners, who travelled from across the country to celebrate.

The Distinguished Dealer Award, established in 1981, is the highest accolade available to both metropolitan and regional Mitsubishi dealers.

It celebrates success across sales, aftersales, and customer experience at a dealership. MMAL views the award as a true representation of the hard work and effort by dealership staff as part of a team throughout the previous year.

Mitsubishi Motors CEO Shaun Westcott said: “The Distinguished Dealer Award sets a high bar for Mitsubishi dealers across Australia, as we seek to continually exceed our customers’ expectations by demonstrating excellence across the business.

“Each year these awards spur the Mitsubishi Motors national dealer network to even higher standards across all facets of dealership operations.

“This year is no different as we recognise a group of consistently high performers while also rewarding new achievers for the first time. This is great news for MMAL and its customers, and we look forward to seeing what our dealer network will achieve in future.”
