Mitsubishi to make plug-in hybrids in Thailand

Japan automaker plans 2021 start as government offers tax incentive

Mitsubishi Motors started selling plug-in hybrid Outlanders in Indonesia in July.

BANGKOK -- Mitsubishi Motors will produce plug-in hybrids in Thailand starting in early 2021, the automaker's first foray into producing the environmentally friendly vehicles outside Japan.

Chairman Osamu Masuko announced the plan Wednesday at a news conference here. Mitsubishi will invest about 10 billion yen ($92 million) to set up production equipment at a plant in Laem Chabang, in the eastern province of Chonburi. The hub will produce the Japanese automaker's Outlander plug-in hybrid.
