Reportedly, Mitsubishi CEO Osamu Masuko has told US automotive trade publication, Automotive News, that the Pajero is a dead duck. There had been rumours the Pajero, known as the Montero in the US and on sale there until 2006, would make a comeback, but no. And Masuko has pointed the finger at fuel consumption as the reason for knocking the full-size fourby on the head.
And not only USA, the vehicle will not be developed for any other market anywhere in the world, CEO Osamu Masuko adds. This stunning announcement thus comes as the final world about the fate of Pajero land cruiser. Additionally, Galant will also be discontinued.
Instead, Mitsubishi plans to roll out a series of plug-in hybrid SUVs. This includes a new Outlander PHEV and a small, coupe-styled crossover which is likely to replace the Lancer, another model that has been destined for the dustbin of history.
