Mitsubishi officially resumes production of Pajero Sport in Russia
Mitsubishi has officially announced that it will restart Pajero Sport's production at its Russian factory in Kaluga.
Just to adapt the factory to the SUV's return, scheduled for November, the Japanese carmaker will assume 440 new employees from January 2018 and will create two more assembly lines on the factory that already builds the Outlander.
Because of the crisis in the Russian market (now recovering), over the last two years Mitsubishi imported the Pajero Sport from its plant in Thailand. Mitsubishi's sales in Russia rose by 5% in the first eight months to over 12,000 vehicles.
