Mitsubishi and Hindustan Motors alliance in India ha launched the Mitsubishi Pajero Sport and Mitsubishi Outlander 7 seater option in India recently. On the sidelines of these launches, Masahiko Ueki, Executive Officer and Corporate GM, Mitsubishi Motors, Japan revealed the intentions of bringing the global small car from Mitsubishi, the Mitsubishi Mirage in India after it is launched in Thailand in March 2012. Mitsubishi has launched the Mirage officially in Thailand this week and we expect that the next stop for Mirage should be in India. Mitsubishi is quite optimistic about the Mirage global small car and plans to sell it in many counties including Asian markets like India, Thailand, Japan etc. and will also sell in Europe in the coming months.

Mitsubishi Mirage Price
Mitsubishi Mirage has been launched in Thailand at 3,80,000 Bhat which is approximately Rs. 6.3 Lakhs in Indian currency. The Mirage will surely drop some of the features and gadgetry when launched in India and the price will be kept in a price range or Rs. 4.5 Lakhs to Rs. 6 Lakhs to make Mirage compete in the premium hatchback segment against cars like Maruti Swift, Hyundai i20, Nissan Micra etc. We will keep a check on the updates of Nissan Mirage launch in India which we expected should happen towards the end of the year.
