- New Mitsubishi L200 hardtop canopy offers 1.5 cubic metre load volume
- Canopy is made by Auto Styling Truckman and costs £1,600 including VAT
- It's very light so L200 payload remains about 1 tonne
Just a couple of months after the launch of the 2015 Mitsubishi L200, pickup canopy manufacturer Auto Styling Truckman has put its hardtop for the new model on sale.
The Truckman Grand, which features remote locking and many more features, is available now and retails at £1,591.38 including VAT.
New hardtop canopy called 'Truckman Grand'
The new canopy weighs in around 95kg, which slightly reduces the payload to around a tonne. The rear aperture of just over one metre and the 1.5 metre load volume means that productivity shouldn't be compromised.
One of the main advantages of Truckman products is their ability to sculpt the canopy around the design of the cab by retaining the body’s contours, and all standard Mitsubishi colours can be specified. A new feature is the lock cover on the tailgate handle, which protects it from dirt ingress.
The window in the bulkhead and opening side tinted windows provides ventilation when carrying livestock, but the vents can only be opened from the inside for added security.
Auto Styling Truckman
Auto Styling Truckman has been manufacturing canopies for pickup trucks since 2002, and is now one of the UK’s leading providers. The company, based in the West Midlands, has been spending a lot of time over the past 12 months developing canopies for the new generation of pickups, including the Mitsubishi L200.
“The Truckman Grand is a high specification hardtop that complements the design, practicality and performance of the Mitsubishi L200 Series 5”, explains Mike Wheeler, Managing Director of Auto Styling Truckman. “It increases the flexibility and security of the L200’s truck bed without comprising on style.”
“We have focused on developing a new generation of hardtops that not only meet the requirements of our commercial and leisure customers, but also share the high quality design and manufacture and attention to detail of the new pick-up trucks”.
