Mitsubishi Xpander bookings almost 7,500
Mitsubishi’s ‘Dynamic Shield’ crossover inspired styling seems to have clicked with potential customers in Indonesia.

MMKSI managed to register 5,281 bookings at the 11-day event. The promotions will continue across Indonesia in the coming days with over 70 customer-centric events planned, according to the report.

While initially the production was slated to commence in October, the company has decided to start manufacturing in September, a decision possibly driven by the strong demand. For now, the Xpander will be sold in Indonesia, followed by its launch in Philippines, Thailand, and Malaysia next year. Exports will expand to the Middle East and a launch in European markets is on the cards as well.

The price of the Mitsubishi Xpander in Indonesia starts at Rp 189,050,000 (INR 907,541) for the entry level grade. The top-spec fully loaded Ultimate trim retails for Rp 245,350,000 (INR 1,177,811). There are a total of five trims on offer. Its rivals include the Honda Mobilio, Suzuki Ertiga and the Toyota Avanza.
