Mitsubishi Pajero Sport in India by January 2012

     Hindustan Motors which is a JV partner for Mitsubishi in India will launch the Pajero Sport SUV at Delhi Auto Expo 2012. The Pajero Sport was supposed to be launched this time but due to raising Yen, there as difficulty in pricing the vehicle competitively.

     The Pajero Sport is powered by a 2.5 liter 16 valve intercooled turbocharged diesel engine which produces 134 Bhp of power and 32 Kgm of torque. The SUV is fitted with Mitsubishi’s rally-proven shift-on-the-fly Super Select 4WD and has ground clearance of 215mm making the vehicle to glide on the potholed Indian roads. Unlike the current Pajero, the Pajero Sport is a 7 seater, thanks to the low seats. The vehicle will be priced between Rs. 20-23 lakh.

     The Pajero Sport will be manufactured at HM’s Tiruvalluvar plant in Tamil Nadu where the current Pajero is manufactured. Recently the current Pajero was upgraded to BS4. To keep the cost competitive HM is trying to localise most of the parts for the new SUV.
