Mitsubishi Motors commences shipment of Russian-produced all-new Outlander SUV

TOKYO —

Mitsubishi Motors Corp said Wednesday that it has commenced shipment of the all-new Outlander SUV assembled at PCMA Russia.

The PCMA assembly plant, owned by both PSA Peugeot Citroen (70%) and MMC (30%), is located in the Kaluga region, 180 km southwest of Moscow. 

The all-new Outlander was first released to the Russian market in July of this year, being exported from Japan. The model has already been a great hit in Russia, and it is expected that the local production that will be available at PCMA will enable MMC to more efficiently bring new Outlanders to a rapidly growing customer base.

The PCMA plant was opened in April 2010 and had been producing the Peugeot and Citroen brand C-segment models and SUVs, as well as the previous generation Outlander. In July of this year, full-scale production commenced first with the Peugeot 408, a Peugeot brand C-segment model. This was followed by full-scale assembly of MMC’s all-new Outlander which began in November. In 2013, a Citroen brand model will be brought to full-scale production, followed by production of MMC’s Pajero Sport.
