Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) announces the global debut of its new Small Crossover MPV at the 25th GAIKINDO Indonesia International Auto Show (GIIAS). The class-leading model will combine the outstanding comfort and versatility of an MPV with the performance, strength and toughness of a Mitsubishi Motors SUV.
MMC’s all-new Small Crossover MPV will come loaded with MMC technology and MMC SUV knowhow. The crossover MPV is to debut on the Indonesian market in fall of 2017. Its body will be wider and larger than MPVs in its class. With a fully optimized variable interior, the new model will bring class-topping*1 living space for seven occupants to ride in comfort. It also adapts quickly and cleverly to a wide array of cargo. It’s distinctive advanced DYNAMIC SHIELD front, its large sculpted fenders front and rear, and its prominent ride height will be first sight proof of the serious SUV performance and toughness rightly expected from Mitsubishi Motors.
The new model will be produced at MMC’s new Indonesian factory in Bekasi Prefecture, West Java.
The GIIAS will be held from August 10 through 20 at the Indonesian Convention Exhibition (ICE) in BSD City, Tangerang, Banten, Indonesia.

Mitsubishi Motors Corporation today, on World Environment Day, unveiled the production version of the i-MiEV*1 *2 new-generation electric vehicle (EV), describing it as “the pioneer that will open the door to the next 100 years of our automobile society.” The i-MiEV will go on sale on the Japanese market in late July of this year.
The i-MiEV represents the crystallization of some 40 years of electric vehicle development at Mitsubishi Motors. The company is presenting the production i-MiEV as the ultimate eco-car, a solution to the various challenges the automobile faces today including environmental pollution, global warming and the depletion of petroleum-based energy supplies. The company will continue its extensive collaboration with both private and public sectors in Japan and overseas in developing infrastructure to promote ownership of EVs.
Mitsubishi Motors expects to distribute, on a maintenance lease*3 basis, some 1,400 i-MiEV models in fiscal 2009 principally to corporations and to local authorities. The company plans to start sales of i-MiEV to individuals in April 2010 and will start taking orders on the Mitsubishi Motors web site in late July of this year.
