India says Goodbye to Mitsubishi Pajero SFX and Lancer

Mitsubishi India has finally discontinued the production of its Pajero SFX and Lancer diesel sedan in India. Though production discontinuation is already in effect, dealer stockyards too will be vaporized in the next couple of months. While Pajero SFX has already got a replacement by the Pajero Sport SUV, the Lancer Diesel is still waiting for a substitute to come.

Both the moves were well anticipated from the Japanese carmaker. The recent price correction of the Pajero Sport, owing to its CKD operations, brought it very close to the Pajero SFX which could have increased cannibalization. The SFX is also not compatible with higher emission norms as its engine is outdated.
