Mitsubishi_Express_frontMitsubishi Motors Australia will launch its latest Express van in July, the first time in more than seven years it has been offered here.

The Express will be available in short and long wheelbase, with a 1.6-litre twin-turbo diesel engine, as well as a 2.0-litre single-turbo diesel fitted with a 25-litre AdBlue tank for improved emissions.

The 1.6-litre engine is only available with a six-speed manual transmission, while the six-speed dual-clutch automatic models are available with the 2.0 diesel. All Express variants are front-wheel drive with Extended Grip – a traction control mode activated by the driver to assist in low grip conditions.

It is being manufactured in France by Mitsubishi’s Alliance partner Renault.


The load area comes in both 5.2 cubic metre (SWB) and 6.0 cubic metre (LWB) volumes. Mitsubishi Australia has worked with a number of suppliers so that this space can be configured to suit the load.

The Express van has three seats. The driver’s seat has a centre retractable armrest, manual height and lumbar adjustment, as well as height and reach steering wheel adjustment.

The audio unit is enabled for Bluetooth and USB connection. All models have an integrated smartphone cradle.
