At a traditional conference dedicated to plans for the current year, Mitsubishi spoke about its intentions, as well as announced two important new items.
The first in our market will receive a restyled Mitsubishi ASX. The start of sales is scheduled for April. Technical characteristics of the restyled ASX for Russia have not yet been officially announced. However, earlier the approval of the type of vehicle (OTTS) has already appeared in the Rosstandart database. Judging by the document, the model will be offered on the Russian market with front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive. The updated ASX will be equipped with a 1.6-liter engine with a return of 117 horsepower. The engine will work in conjunction with a 6-speed manual gearbox. Also, customers will be offered a 2.0-liter unit and a variator. No less important new will be the updated Pajero Sport, which will reach us in December. Moreover, the president of the company, Osamu Iwaba, stressed that the new product will be available on the Russian market with diesel and gasoline engines.
It is curious that, according to the brand’s management, Russian sales of new cars this year will fall due to new recycling rates. Meanwhile, the company intends to sell more than 35,000 cars this year. In addition, Mitsubishi intends to actively promote its lending programs and the sale of certified used cars. If we talk about new areas, such as car subscription services, which are now gaining momentum with other companies, here Mitsubishi remains on the side of research and analysis, although it recognizes the prospect of the direction itself.
