Yes, it still baffles me why they decided not to bring the new Lancer to India when it was launched in 2007.

On second thoughts, it is good that the new Lancer (now old) is not in the current plan. It is really showing its age, and if launched now, they would have made us live with another aging Lancer for next 10 years.

They had some plans for RVR. What happened? Some news on that showed up.
Now nothing on that? They should have had it in their line-up.

The next big boom segment would have to be the Compact X-Over.

Although here we are discussing the new launches by HM, today news paper states that to avoid going into BIFR HM has sold it's land in Gujrat, I don't have very high hopes for the future of the company.
I feel it will be better to stay away from products untill HM clears it's financial standing

The CRDI engine would probably be for the Pajero / Montero. Unless they get smart & get one in the Outlander too !!


Cheers

Its sad that HM-Mitsubishi is still keen on exploring age old Ambassador platform and not even considering anything for A & B segment which can win them both bread and butter.

Why not Colt & RVR?

Why is the MUV on the Amby platform being called 'commercial', don't they plan to sell it to private buyers or is it too crude.?
Also no news about the Amby CS and other variants
And clueless about the CRDi engine, but still a good step forward.
And after seeing the new scoop pics of the Amby pick up in ACI, am kinda liking it.

Slew of launches which does not include new Lancer? Well, what can I say? Some people will never learn. HM is a big millstone around the neck of Mitsubishi which is weighing Mitsu down. Don't know why can't Mitsubishi see this? If they really had to partner up with an Indian firm, they should have chosen Tata or Mahindra.

Red face Re: HM-Mitsubishi : A slew of launches coming up

Although new products are being launched by HM_Mitsu which was dormant for quite long time, its a pity that the Cedia and Lancer are not part of the new beginning. Why is Mitsu still hanging around with HM, they should get out of the rut immediately.

Reading the thread topic, I assumed that there will be something by Mitsubishi regarding the Colt, but alas no such thing. Pretty sad.

Well, it's so easy to ask a manufacturer to launch x or y number of cars. In case they are not doing so could be because of few reasons - assuming incompetence and/or laziness got nothing to do with it.

Hm-Mitsubishi are so lazy that I wouldn't be surprised if Renault has more types on the road than them in a few months.

I wonder how Colt would change their fortunes. They would have to assemble here for any worthwhile pricing.
And all these new cars mentioned by GTO- meh, I'll believe it when I see it.

And gone the Fiat or Renault (Logan) way? Though better than Mitsubishi's condition, It's not really what Fiat or Renault wanted! Renault have done the sensible thing and washed their hands off the Logan and repositioned themselves as a aspirational brand with the Fluence. When they launch their hatch (Clio?) they'd have already built a *premium* image in the consumers mind and the hatch should do well.

Mitsubishi, its time for you to break free and start your second innings in India. Come on.

I am surprised they have not planned to launch the Colt in India. I am sure it would be a good bet in the hatch segment (i10 etc).

Why would HM-Mitsubishi launch a new version of a car that sells the lowest in their range and of all cars in India? They better concentrate on the segments they have more presence or try-out new segments.

Whats funny is that they arent planning to bring in the Lancer. We have been waiting for it for years !! I think now its almost time for the next gen Lancer. This ones been arnd since 2007. (referring to the one selling abroad and not the Cedia and the Original Lancer)

First bold move Mitsu needs to make is to dump HM. As long as they have those bozos in their JV, they will keep producing vehicles like multi-colored SUVs with 108 bhp engines.

Somehow news from Mitsu-HM fails to excite. They've beaten the word "slow" by a mile.

Pricing more than anything will hold the key. For the Pajero Sport, they can't afford to overshoot Fortuner's pricing.

For Outlander, they would need a diesel motor more than 7seats config.
