Mitsubishi Motors Announces Production Launch of 'Outlander' SUV at Okazaki Plant.
Mizushima plant has been producing its model so far, but due to robust growth in sales of domestic mini-cars and export models, the plant's production capacity has reached maximum level. Transferring a part of "Outlander" production will ease current production condition of overloaded Mizushima plant.
Mitsubishi Motors celebrated production launch of "Outlander" at Okazaki plant today. President Masuko made remarks during the ceremony, "This is an impressive moment to celebrate a new start of Okazaki plant, however we also need to reaffirm that we are still on a passing point on the execution of the revitalization plan. I would like to ask all the employees here today to challenge forward to create Okazaki plant's new history."
Okazaki plant had been operated with one-shift from April 2004; its operation shift is changed to two-shift for the first time in the past 32 months.
