Mitsubishi Lancer gone by end of 2018

The venerable Mitsubishi Lancer will exit Australian showrooms before the end of 2018 and begin an indefinite hiatus, until a potential successor is created using a platform from its Alliance partners: majority owner Nissan, and French brand Renault. Production of the small sedan and hatch stopped at the end of 2017, more than a decade into the outgoing car’s generational life-cycle, in all factories except for those supplying Taiwan and mainland China.
