Mitsubishi does not plan to expand model range in Russia


To date, the main drivers of sales of Mitsubishi in Russia are models of local assembly because of their accessibility. They are Outlander and Pajero Sport, which are produced at the plant "PSMA Rus" in Kaluga. Meanwhile, in the Russian market there are not all models of the Japanese brand, among them - the low-cost Mirage sedan and minivan Delica D: 5.

As the President and CEO of "MMC Rus", Naoya Takaya, informed the portal "Kolesa.ru", the company really wanted to run both cars in Russia, as studies have shown the interest of potential buyers in these models. However, issues of economic feasibility are considered first of all. Mirage model at the moment is imported, its assembly is carried out in Thailand and clearance at customs will inevitably cause an increase in its value. It will affect negatively the competitiveness of sedan among the other members of the B-segment.

Naoya Takaya also confessed to liking to "Delica", but this car is impossible to bring to our country due to technical reasons. Minivan is assembled exclusively in versions with RHD, and there are no modifications for countries with left-hand traffic.

In the near future, Mitsubishi intends to bet on market of crossovers and to release several models for five years. Already it was even announced rival for BMW X4. But in spite of such "off-road" plans, the company decided to abandon the new generation of Pajero.
