Mitsubishi has announced that they will close their South Australian plant in March with the lost of 930 employees.
In a statement released a short time ago Mitsubishi stated that the ” … decision has been made because Australian consumers are moving towards smaller, more economic, and environmentally friendlier cars like those in the rest of the Mitsubishi range.”
Of course the closure of the plant means the end of production for the 380 – the car that very few people seemed to want.
Now if the reasons given for closing the plant are correct then I wonder what’s in store for Ford when they release the new Falcon. Have Australian consumers really moved on from the big 6 cylinder cars?
