Mitsubishi Xpander customers won't have to wait much for deliveries. The production was scheduled to commence in October, but Mitsubishi will start manufacturing a month in advance, in September. Produced at the company's new Indonesian factory in Bekasi Prefecture, West Java Province, the Xpander will reach export markets next year. Philippines will get the new MPV in February, followed by Thailand, Malaysia and Vietnam later.
