TOKYO Oct 7 Mitsubishi Motors Corp
will start selling its pickup trucks in Myanmar around January
next year, it said on Monday, joining the rush by global
carmakers to offer new vehicles in the Southeast Asian country's
nascent auto market.
Mitsubishi Motors, which already has a shop in Yangon that
provides after service to used Mitsubishi cars, will import its
pickup truck L200 from Thailand and sell them in Myanmar, the
company said in a statement.
Japan's Nissan Motor Co, Suzuki Motor Corp
and Mazda Motor Corp, as well as U.S. carmakers Ford
Motor Co and General Motors, are already selling or
have expressed intentions to sell new vehicles in Myanmar that
until recently was under international economic sanctions.
