Mitsubishi starting Xpander assembly in Vietnam
Mitsubishi Motors Corporation said it would begin assembling its Xpander crossover multi-purpose vehicle (MPV) from CKD kits at its factory in Vietnam.
The company also commemorated the 25th anniversary of Mitsubishi Motors Vietnam (MMV) with a ceremony in Ho Chi Minh City.
MMV already assembles the Outlanders and is planning to expand its production capacity with the start of Xpander production. Sales of the model have been increasing throughout southeast Asia since autumn 2017 when assembly and sales in Indonesia began.
The Xpander was released in Vietnam in October 2018 and MMV sold 14,000 units in Vietnam in fiscal year 2018, doubling sales year on year.
