Someone who works in the auto industry that is not related to Mitsu or Nissan speculated to me they think Mitsubishi down the road will only make trucks and suvs in the first world countries and would continue making cars in association with Nissan for third world countries.
This guy told me to look up about the future Lancer... I did find an article.
I don't know what to think except I hope Mitsu continues making a basic, reliable vehicle. He's going on the fact everyone is in the CUV/truck/suv phase and how cars in general are not selling compared to the boom. He feels mitsu if they want to increase market share in the US would have to build what people want.
