Mitsubishi Evo X to debut in Malaysia next week

Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia Sdn Bhd (MMM) plans to launch its latest Mitsubishi Evo X in Malaysia next week as the third model within this year, reported Malaysia national news agency Bernama on Friday.

MMM chief operating officer Omar Haron revealed on Friday at the New Straits Times (NST)-Maybank Car of the Year 2008 awards media launch that the new Evo X will be the third model to be introduced this year after the Triton Lite and Triton 3.2.Bernama quoted Omar as saying “This is among the ideal models from Mitsubishi and it is actually positioned at the top level of sportiveness. So, it’s on a higher level in terms of pricing and specifications.”

“Maybe the volume will not be large but we want the public that Mitsubishi has many models to offer,” he said.

Asked on the possibility of Mitsubishi partnering with Proton, Omar said: “They have the prerogative to choose whoever they want to. As far Mitsubishi is concerned, we have our complete product line-up, so we are here to stay. We are not Proton.”

On the awards, New Straits Times’ group editor Syed Nadzri Syed Harun said it has 12 categories comprising entry level cars, premium small cars, family cars, executive and premium family cars, premium executive cars, limousines, sport and performance cars, midi multi-purpose vehicles (MPVs), MPVs, sport utility vehicles (SUVs), premium SUVs, and double cabs pick-up trucks.

Syed Nadzri said so far this year, 51 new models had been launched and three more models were due to be launched next week.

“We should close our Car of the Year award window this year with about 60 models, including variants and facelifts,” he said.
