Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia has announced that it has moved into a new parts warehouse in Shah Alam, Selangor, as part of an expansion plan to meet increasing after-sales demands.

With a storage capacity of up to 40,000 square feet, the expansion will also improve warehouse operations including consolidating all holdings under-one-roof. This move will speed up delivery of parts required by all MMM authorized business partners including 52 dealers nationwide.

“The relocation of our warehouse is in line with the continuous growth of Mitsubishi Motors business in Malaysia. The new parts warehouse is located at a strategic location with less road congestion and easy access to Federal and KESAS highway,” said MMM CEO, Tomoyuki Shinnishi.

“With this accessibility, we will be able to accelerate our parts delivery to MMM’s business partners as we constantly seek to improve customer’s after-sales experience by reducing cost and increasing our work efficiency,” he added.

This is likely a preparation for the imminent launch of the new, highly anticipated Mitsubishi Xpander which was previewed to the public at Mid Valley recently. Information has been limited although we can confirm that it would come with Apple Car Play, a 360 degree view monitor, LED headlights and16-inch alloys.

While it’s not confirmed, it’s very safe to assume that the Xpander would come with only one engine option – a 1.5-litre naturally-aspirated engine with 105 hp and 141 Nm to power the front wheels via 4-speed automatic.
