Video: We speak to Mitsubishi Malaysia’s bosses on the new Xpander and future plans!

Now that you’ve seen and read everything there is to know about the new Mitsubishi Xpander which was revealed to us just over a week ago, check out what the top brass in the company had to say about the Xpander, what you can expect from it and Mitsubishi as a whole, in the coming years.

The 7-seater Mitsubishi Xpander will only be available in one variant and is powered by a 1.5-litre naturally-aspirated engine with 105 hp and 141 Nm, paired to a 4-speed auto gearbox to drive the front wheels.

In the video, we also discussed the identity of the Xpander, why it’s called a crossover and not a mini MPV, and which demographic would find the Xpander most appealing. It seems that the public has responded already as Mitsubishi claimed that they’ve received over 7,000 registration of interests for the car. How many of those will be converted to actual sales, remains to be seen.

For those of you who aren’t aware, Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia is actually introducing the Xpander right away with the facelift model with several minor changes mainly on the car’s exterior. For a brief impression of how the Xpander drives and thrives as a family vehicle, check out the review below by Fitra Eri, our confidante in Jakarta, and top motoring journalist in Indonesia.
