Mitsubishi announced back in August last year that it will be leaving the UK and Europe and therefore no new models would be launched at all, due to profitability issues. However the company could be planning on staying thanks to the existing Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance.

A new report from the Financial Times suggests that in order to cut down costs, some of the cars could be moved to France for example, utilising the factories Renault has. the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance means that Mitsubishi is 34% owned by Nissan and Renault also holds a 43% share of the company.

However recently, Mitsubishi has launched the all new Outlander in the US and other markets with an EU and UK launch remaining unlikely, even though the previous generation Outlander PHEV was the most popular plug in hybrid in Europe.
