Indonesian made Xpander is doing well in ASEAN markets

Mitsubishi Motors said it would increase production of its Xpander small MPV following strong demand from customers in the ASEAN region.
 
The Xpander is built in Bekasi, Indonesia, and exports began last April. MMC planned to produce 100,000 units in fiscal year 2018 but in response to demand, it has been decided to boost production 20% to 120,000 units in order to ensure waiting times are managed. Further increases are being investigated.
 
Mitsubishi Motors Krama Yudha Indoneisa (MMKI) has already added welding and assembly facilities to increase production of the Xpander to the new higher level of 10,000 per month.
 
In addition, to satisfy demand and future export expansion, it plans to continue increasing production capacity of the Xpander by aiming for 150,000 units in fiscal 2019.
 
The Xpander attracted 80,000 orders in Indonesia between the start of order intake in August 2017 and June 2018. Last March it was ranked top selling model there.
