Mitsubishi is to help DaimlerChrysler increase Smart car production by 200,000 units a year from 2004, Bloomberg News reports. The two companies will build new four-seat versions at the NedCar plant in the Netherlands which is currently owned by Ford and Mitsubishi. Ford, which currently builds the Volvo S and V40 series models at NedCar, will sell its share of the plant to DaimlerChrysler before production begins.
