Introduced New Mitsubishi ExpressApril 22, 2020
The Australian car market has become even richer with the Mitsubishi Express model. However, the practical Mitsubishi is less “Japanese” than expected given its name.
Last year, it was announced that Mitsubishi, as a partner in the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi alliance, would eventually receive its own version of the Trafic, a minibus and a passenger bus, which is also part of Nissan (NV300) and Fiat (Talento), and that until recently Opel / Vauxhall Vivaro. The Mitsubishi variant is now presented as this all-new Express.
The new Mitsubishi Express is available exclusively as a right-hand drive option, due to the fact that the Japanese bus is only available in Australia and New Zealand. It is not surprising that the appearance of Express is almost indistinguishable from its brothers in the alliance. The new minibus has Mitsubishi logos on the front, and inside the Mitsubishi emblem is present only on the steering wheel, and only it gives out the accessory of the Japanese brand.
The Express engine, which will be manufactured in Sanduville, France, just like the Trafic, Talento, and NV300, has a 1.6-liter 140-hp diesel engine. and 340 Nm of torque, as well as a 2.0-liter engine with 170 hp. and 380 Nm of torque.
In Australia, Trafic will compete with cars such as Ford Transit and Toyota HiAce. According to autoweek.nl, the Mitsubishi Express actually follows Delica, the Mitsubishi bus, whose commercial version is known in some markets as the L400 or as a passenger van called Space Gear.
