Broadcaster, businesswoman and farmer, Kate Humble, has taken delivery of an all-new Mitsubishi L200 Series 5 after the model’s forerunners became one of the most important tools on her farm.
The well known TV presenter is currently busy gearing up for The Big Day Out, a weekend festival of food, music, crafts and fun at her farm, Humble by Nature, in the Wye Valley, Monmouth, and the L200 is already being put to good use.
Kate has admired the versatile and dependable pick-up over the years since buying her first – a battered second hand Series 2 – and has since gone on to become a Mitsubishi brand ambassador.
The new Series 5 is Kate’s fourth L200 and the adaptable all-rounder has become the go-to vehicle on her working farm where it is used for everything from transporting animals to getting things ready for the Big Day Out, which takes place from Friday, July 1st to Sunday, July 3rd.
Kate also uses the pick up for business, travelling to filming locations and personal appearances across Europe.
Taking delivery of the new L200 Series 5, an excited Kate said: “I absolutely love the L200.
“With my lifestyle, I want a vehicle that’s really going to work and one that isn’t phased by anything.
“For me, that’s the L200 because it does exactly what it says on the tin and is up to any job.”
Kate, whose second book, A Friend for Life: The Extraordinary Partnership Between Humans and Dogs came out at the end of May, added: “I’ve been through the L200s over the years – this will be my fourth – and the Mitsubishi designers and engineers have been winning me over with a better driving experience and more creature comforts each time.
“As soon as you drive the new Series 5 you can feel the improvements Mitsubishi has made. It has a lighter touch and is instantly more responsive and car like. We have already been putting it to work on the farm and it can handle everything we need it to.”
