Mitsubishi Outlander: where and when will it go on sale first?
North America will be the first market to see a price announcement for the new Outlander in the coming months. Mitsubishi will not sell the model in Europe as the brand has stopped importing new models to the continent. However, the Outlander will go on sale in other markets such as Japan, the Middle East, and the ASEAN region, in addition to Australia and New Zealand. As far as India is concerned, Mitsubishi has been selling the older generation Outlander in very limited quantities, and there is no news of the latest version coming to our shores anytime soon.
