Mitsubishi to launch Outlander in India shortly

Mitsubishi is likely to launch the Outlander SUV in india within the next six months[by first quarter of 2008] to cater to the growing demand of Suv's in India.The car is expected to be priced within a price range of Rs.15-25 lakhs.It is expected to take on the Suzuki Grand Vitara,the Honda CRV and the soon to be launched Chevrolet Captiva.

Already the suv's from the mitsubishi stable are doing quite well here[the older generation pajero,and the newer montero].


Update 1:
Things have been delayed a bit but the wait may well be worth it since mitsubishi may actually be locally assembling the car bringing down costs to chevrolet captiva levels.Also a diesel engine is also expected.Most probable launch date is september 2008.Pricing around 18 lakhs.

Update 2:
Economictimes says that the starting price could be as low as Rs.15.5 lakhs.
