Japanese car manufacturer, Mitsubishi is focusing only on SUVs in India, as the company had discontinued all of its sedans from the market a couple of months back. Currently, the company has Pajero Sport and Montero, and is all set to re-launch the company’s flagship SUV Outlander, which was phased out last year. The lack of diesel engine was the reason behind removing Outlander from the line-up.
According to the Financial Express, Hindustan Motors will launch the Mitsubishi Outlander diesel by early 2014. Moreover, the diesel version of the SUV also comes equipped with various new features. Few days back, the company has also launched the Pajero Sport anniversary edition in India.
Speaking about the company’s future plans, P Vijayan, COO, Hindustan Motors said, “The company is working on the new model of the diesel version and will launch it in early 2014. It will be a more rejuvenated model and will be placed in the UV 4 segment (premium). As Mitsubishi’s partner in India, we want to focus only on the utility vehicle segment and one can see more variants/models of Mitsubishi Pajero and Outlander going forward in India.”
