Mitsubishi Pajero Sport bores a hefty price tag of Rs. 23.53 lakh in India (ex-showroom Delhi), but the company is looking forward to reduce this price by 20% once the assembly of the product is started through CKD (completely knocked down) kits in the domestic market. This plan would get into action from September 2012, and Mitsubishi will start assembling the Pajero Sport SUV at the Hindustan Motors’ Chennai production unit. Hindustan Motors is the Indian partner of this Japanese Auto Giant. The resultant of the CKD assembly units would be a price tag of less than Rs. 20 lakh for Mitsubishi Pajero Sport SUV.

It however, stands unclear whether Mitsubishi Pajero SFX will have to bid adieu to the auto world in next 4-5 months or not. If yes, then with the Pajero Sport will get into the big shoes of the Pajero SFX, Mitsubishi is expected to offer decent discount on the final batch of the classic Pajero SFX in the upcoming months.
