Bangkok--10 Jan--Mitsubishi Motors
  • 400 XPANDER vehicles delivered to Garuda, Indonesia's national airline
  • Largest fleet sales delivery by Mitsubishi Motors to date in Indonesia
Mitsubishi Motors has concluded the largest fleet sale to date of its XPANDER model, demonstrating the strong demand for the company's award-winning MPV (multi-purpose vehicle) among commercial buyers.

Garuda, Indonesia's national carrier, has taken delivery of more than 400 XPANDER vehicles, which will be used by the airline's staff to support operations at Soekarno-Hatta International Airport in Tangerang, Indonesia.

XPANDER has become one of Mitsubishi Motors' best-selling models in Indonesia since its launch in 2017, with sales of nearly 100,000 units by the end of November 2018. Developed and manufactured in Indonesia, the XPANDER was designed to meet the needs of the fast-growing economies of the ASEAN region.

The XPANDER is a small but roomy crossover that can carry a driver and up to seven passengers in comfort, with plenty of space for luggage. It combines an attractive and comfortable design with the toughness and reliability for which the Mitsubishi brand is renowned. It was named Car of the Year earlier this year by Otomotif, the leading Indonesian tabloid.

From the outset, Mitsubishi Motors recognized that many customers would buy an XPANDER for commercial use. Fleet sales are an important [and growing] part of XPANDER's success, and the order from Garuda is the largest single contract to date.

Trevor Mann, COO of Mitsubishi Motors, said: "The XPANDER has been a huge success in Indonesia and beyond, appealing to both private and business buyers. We are very pleased that our largest fleet sale to date is with Garuda Indonesia, a leading national company. This builds on the XPANDER's retail success, with more than 100,000 vehicles sold since launch in 2017."

The latest batch of 282 XPANDERS were delivered at an event attended by I Gusti Ngurah Askhara Danadiputra, CEO of Garuda Indonesia. Among other uses, Garuda's air crew will use XPANDERs carrying the airline's brand as airport shuttles.

In Thailand, interest towards Mitsubishi XPANDER remains strong. From its launch in August to the closing of 2018, Mitsubishi XPANDER achieved sales of about 6,000 units with some committed units soon to be allocated to customers.
