Mitsubishi next to enter Myanmar

Reading Time: 1 minute

Mitsubishi MyanmarMitsubishi is the next car maker to enter the Myanmar market through local partners, saying on October 7 that it will start selling its pickup trucks in the countryfrom January 2014.

The brand already has a service shop in Yangon, which opened in May 2013; the outlet handles after-sales service for used Mitsubishi vehicles already in the market. Beginning January 2014, the company will begin new car sales with the L200 pickup (essentially, the Triton Single Cab), which is imported from Thailand.

The auto market is set to grow in Myanmar. Earlier in the year, the country loosened restrictions on imports and revised its taxes on pickup trucks. Mazda announced that its first dealership there will open also in 2014, and unlike Mitsubishi, the brand is going in with a host of models ranging from the CX-5 SUV to the BT-50 pickup.

Nissan is taking things even further afield – it’s planning to start production of small passenger cars and pickups in the country. At present, a sales and service center has been opened in Yangon, and is selling imported pickups and large commercial vans. Tata, meanwhile, made the country the first ASEAN market for its Nano compact.
