TOKYO, Nov 30, 2021 – (JCN Newswire via SEAPRWire.com) – Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) today launched its first models of the revived Ralliart brand, the Triton(1) Ralliart and the Pajero Sport(2) Ralliart as special editions. Both models will be exhibited at the 38th Thailand International Motor Expo 2021(3) in Bangkok, and sales will commence on December 1 at the Motor Expo and Mitsubishi Motors’ dealerships nationwide in Thailand.
Ralliart is MMC’s iconic brand that had refined the driving performance and style of Mitsubishi vehicles over the years through its participation in the World Rally Championship and the Dakar Rally. Respecting the brand image built at the extreme motorsport scenes, the revived Ralliart will start from sales of accessories and provide the excitement and pride that only the owners of Mitsubishi vehicles can feel.
The Ralliart special editions are based on MMC’s global strategic models – Triton 1-ton pickup truck and Pajero Sport mid-size SUV – and are equipped with special accessories, including side decals with red, silver and black stripes, and red mud flaps reminiscent of its historic rally cars, and other exterior and interior accessories with the Ralliart logo.
“We are truly honored to bring back the Ralliart brand products to the fans of Mitsubishi Motors and Ralliart,” said Takao Kato, president and chief executive officer, MMC. “Starting from these Ralliart special editions in Thailand, we are planning to introduce more of the attractive items sequentially.
