Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV - DR
Another blow for the automotive sector: Mitsubishi, member of the Renault-Nissan Alliance, has just announced the freezing of the development of new models for Europe. The Outlander PHEV is however a great success in Europe and even worldwide. In addition, another SUV in the range, the Eclipse Cross, seemed to have been designed for the Old Continent. However, these two models, which will be renewed next year, will not come to us in their "new form".
The Japanese manufacturer still specifies that the sale of existing models remains relevant and that the after-sales service will continue. But for how long ? This question remains unanswered for the moment, but we will have to expect the brand's withdrawal in Europe soon. Mitsubishi prefers to refocus its activities in Asia and Oceania, where sales are less "confidential". This only confirms the communication from the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance which declared, at the end of May, that "each brand was going to concentrate on its key regions".
