Mitsubishi to produce PHEVs in Thailand in fiscal 2020/21
Mitsubishi Motors confirmed plans to begin production of plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) in Thailand in the next fiscal year ending in March 2021.
The Japanese automaker's local subsidiary, Mitsubishi Motors Thailand, will produce the vehicles on the site of its current Laem Chabang plant in Chon Buri province, where it makes Triton pickup trucks, the Pajero Sport SUV and also passenger cars.
The company earlier this year was granted incentives by the Thai Board of Investment on investments worth THB 3.1billion (US $ 100m), the fourth automaker to qualify after Mercedes-Benz, BMW and SAIC Motor-CP.
Mitsubishi did not reveal which model it will produce but earlier this month it launched the Outlander plug-in hybrid at the Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Show.
