Auto manufacturers across the globe has been using their successful pick-up trucks platform to develop SUVs, and Mitsubishi Pajero Sport and Toyota Fortuner are the best example for the same. With slight modification and by reducing weight of such platforms resulted into a solid and reliable structure for SUVs.
Mitusbishi, the Japanese automaker is facing a slowdown in its sales not just in India but across the global auto-markets. In a bid to regain its lost market share, the company has announced its next three year's plan, which includes utility vehicles and electric cars. The company will introduce an all-new Pajero Sport SUV in 2015.
We already saw Toyota Hilux platform and Mitusbishi Triton pick-up truck platforms used to develop the world's most successful SUVs such as the Fortuner and the Pajero Sport respectively. The new Triton pick up truck platform will underpin the next generation Pajero Sport, which will also come to India by the 2015-16.
In India, Pajero Sport is the only model which generates some sales number for the Japanese automaker, which is in a joint venture with the homegrown Hindustan Motors. So, we expect that the next gen Pajero Sport will also come to India. However, nothing has been confirmed about the company's future plans for the Indian car market.
Few days back, Mitsubishi and Renault-Nissan Alliance have joined their hands to explore several new projects covering shared products, technologies and manufacturing capacity among the automakers. Mitusbishi will introduce two new sedan models in full-size D-segment and C-segment, based on vehicles from the Renault portfolio. The D-segment sedan is basically for the US and Canada and would be developed at the Renault-Samsung plant in Busan, South Korea. The C-segment sedan will be a global product.
In India, the Pajero Sport SUV is powered by a 2.5-litre turbo diesel engine that churns out a maximum power output of 178bhp and 400Nm of top torque. Power is transmitted to all four wheels via a five speed manual transmission.
