Back in November 2020, we cited a report saying Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) is working on a hybrid Xpander that’s set to be launched as early as 2023. Well, the Japanese carmaker has finally confirmed those reports.

During the recent presentation of its financial results for FY2020, MMC shared its game plan to strengthen its businesses in specific regions—including Southeast Asia—over the next few years.

In addition to these, MMC also mentioned the 2022 and 2023 launches of the new Triton (a.k.a Strada) and new Pajero Sport (a.k.a. Montero Sport), respectively—something that we’ve known for quite some time already.

There are also at least four unnamed “all-new models” that MMC hinted at, although we have no details regarding those. In any case, would you care to share your thoughts on Mitsubishi’s upcoming launches, readers? The comments section is open.
