Mitsubishi will not allocate new model at Netherlands Car site

Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) will not allocate a new model at its subsidiary European production site, Netherlands Car (NedCar), for production from 2013.

NedCar currently produces Colt and Outlander models designated for sales in MMC’s European market.

However, in December 2010, MMC had made decisions regarding the future treatment of NedCar’s production operation.

Specifically, MMC has decided to terminate the local production operation of the Colt at the end of 2012.

The production of Outlander will be maintained until the end of 2012, but whether a replacement model to be allocated for production from 2013 and beyond or not is yet to be determined.

The company said in a statement that it will examine measures that would enable production operation at NedCar to continue from 2013 and beyond.
