Kuala Lumpur, 8 September 2020 – MITSUBISHI MOTORS MALAYSIA (MMM) the official distributor of Mitsubishi Motors vehicles in Malaysia, announced that the new Mitsubishi XPANDER will be locally-assembled in Malaysia, following the company’s announcement of launching the seven-seater crossover in Malaysia this year.

“In January 2014, MMM’s first complete knock-down (CKD) model was the ASX Compact SUV assembled in Tan Chong Motors Assembly in Segambut. Then in September 2017, MMM locally-assembled our second model which was the Outlander seven-seater SUV in the same plant. Now another milestone model for MMM, the new Mitsubishi XPANDER has arrived and will be built to excellence in a new production facility in Pekan, Pahang by Malaysians incorporating Japanese automotive technology,” said Tomoyuki Shinnishi, Chief Executive Officer of MMM.
