Mitsubishi Express vans relaunch in Australia

For the first time since 2014 the Mitsubishi Express badge returns to Australia in July with the release of the Express van.

The Express is manufactured by Renault in France as a product of the global Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi alliance and is essentially a re-styled Renault Trafic.

It will be offered here in both short and long wheelbase versions with a choice of manual and automatic transmissions and standard dual sliding doors and glazed rear barn doors fitted with 9o degree and 180 degree stops.

The front wheel drive Express will be available with a 1.6L twin turbo diesel engine as well as a 2.0L single turbo diesel engine.

A 1.6L engine is only available with a six-speed manual transmission, while the six-speed dual clutch transmission (6DCT) automatic transmission is standard with the 2.0L diesel.

Safety equipment on all models includes Adaptive Cruise Control and hill descent control as well as five airbags.

Automatic transmission versions have a rear view camera and automatic wipers and headlights.

The load area comes in both 5.2 cubic metres (SWB) and 6.0 cubic metres (LWB) volumes with Gross Vehicle Mass ratings up to 3,070 kgs.

Mitsubishi will launch the Express with its standard 5 year/100,000 km warranty offer and Mitsubishi $250 Capped Price Servicing is available for the first 3 years/45,000km of ownership with the service intervals at 15,000 km.

Mitsubishi Motors Australia CEO, Shaun Westcott said: “Mitsubishi is known for bringing Australians a range of flexible, dependable and capable vehicles, and the Express retains these Mitsubishi characteristics”
