Mitsubishi pulls out of Detroit Auto Show

Mitsubishi pulls out of Detroit Auto Show

Mitsubishi concept

In eight weeks time the 2009 Detroit Auto Show will kick into gear and Mitsubishi won’t be there. Like a handful of other high-profile manufacturers who have pulled out (including Rolls-Royce, Land Rover, Ferrari, Suzuki, and Porsche), the Japanese automaker based its decision on cost — the market for Mitsubishi automobiles in the Detroit area just isn’t significant enough to warrant the expenditure in today’s economy. The automaker’s move is rather significant as the Detroit show is considered one of the most prestigious in the world. Skipping the 20098 show doesn’t prevent manufacturers from returning in 2010.

Check back as we bring you more information about the upcoming Detroit Auto Show.
