Mitsubishi plays it safe for now THE shrinking large car market won't be get- ting an imported con- tender from Mitsu- bishi any time soon. Mitsubishi Australia boss Ro- bert McEniry says the large car market is getting tougher and an imported replacement for the now-defunct Adelaide-built 380 sedan is not on the cards. ''You look at the numbers being generated now by local manufacturers for the domestic market, look at what we were being held up as for the minium number required, you start to do a comparison . . .'' he says. The company was reportedly looking at the production ver- sion of the Conecpt ZT for introduction as early as next year but plans have stalled. ''I think we'll see a replace- ment model for the 380 but not in the near future,'' he says. The company's SUV ranks will be bolstered by the arrival of the Triton-based Challenger in November and an as-yet un- named compact SUV, based on the Concept-cX clean-diesel ve- hicle first seen at Frankfurt motor show in 2007. ''We're going to be pretty strong in SUV and cross-over style vehicles. Our Tiguan-style car will be in 2WD and 4WD, which will give us more smaller passenger opportunities as well,'' he says. The compact slots in below the facelifted Outlander, which will get a turbodiesel variant but not using the engine powering the Citroen and Peugeot models. ''We will put a diesel in it, we were looking at using the PSA diesel, but that's too expensive at the moment. ''We'll wait until we get an MMC diesel in it and we'll take that, you'll start to see over the next 12-18 months diesels com- ing into most of our range,'' he says. The company's Pajero off-road flagship is three years away from an all-new model, but Mr McEniry hinted that clues to its new-generation drivetrain might be seen at this year's Tokyo motor show. Mr McEniry is also extremely determined to get even a hand- ful of the i-MiEV electric cars on Australian soil. ''If it doesn't get here, there will be trouble, we are desper- ately trying to shoehorn some, even if it is only five, out of overseas markets. ''The demand for the thing globally is making it difficult for us. Otherwise we're in the pro- duction schedules for early next year,'' he says. The straight-talking Mitsu- bishi boss says that, like all new technology, it is initially going to be be expensive. ''By this time next year they're aiming to have the price down close to half of what it will be when it's first released. The real issue is in the batteries,'' he says.
