Thai Car of the Year Awards for Mitsubishi at Bangkok International Motor Show
Mitsubishi Triton takes Best Pickup Truck, Space Wagon takes Best MPV awards.
Mitsubishi Motors Corporation has announced that the company's Triton pickup truck and Space Wagon (Japan market name "Grandis") minivan models both emerged as prize winners in the Thai Car of the Year Awards held at the 27th Bangkok International Motor Show.
Triton won the Best Realistic Fuel Economy Pickup Truck, 2.5L Engine Class, and the Best Pickup Truck. While Space Wagon took the Best MPV award.
Triton has found favor with customers for its sedan-like ride, its original exterior and interior design features and the powerful performance delivered by a new diesel engine that uses common rail direct fuel injection technology.
Domestic market sales of the Triton pickup, which was launched in Bangkok on August 25 2005, are growing healthily. In addition, export shipments to Europe (European market name "L200") started in December 2005. As a global strategic model, a full export program to about 140 countries has begun now.
