Mitsubishi to launch Evolution series, new Pajero

Mitsubishi which has been in India since 1998, is looking to strengthen its presence in the passenger vehicle market  by launching its Evolution series of cars and a new variant of its sports utility vehicle Pajero in the domestic market as it looks to double sales this fiscal.

Mitsubishi is also aiming to sell nearly 10,000 units by 2011-12. In the past fiscal it sold 2,200 units.

Mitsubishi had planned to introduce one or two models from the Evolution series in last year, but put off the decision due to the global downturn.

Recently it launched a variant of its sports utility vehicle Outlander with a 2.4-litre petrol engine, which is Bharat Stage IV emission norms-compliant.

Besides Outlander, HM-Mitsubishi currently sells sedans Lancer and Cedia and the SUVs Pajero and Montero, in the country. The partners jointly have 40 dealerships across the country.
