Mitsubishi to get rebadged Infiniti M in Japan, may be the Diamante

2011 Infiniti M

Mitsubishi Motors, a brand that is rarely discussed if we’re not talking about the Lancer Evolution X, is getting a new flagship sedan that could be the successor to the Diamante sedan that was shelved in 2004.

Under a new agreement with Nissan, Mitsubishi will start selling a rebadged version of the Nissan Fuga sedan, known to us as the Infiniti M in the United States, in Japan next summer.

Mitsubishi said that it has no plans to sell the vehicles in other region and what the company plans on calling it or what the sales target will be.

What will Nissan get in return? As a part of the new agreement, Mitsubishi will supply Nissan its Minicab-MiEV all-electric commercial minivan.

Nissan has also agreed to provide its NV200 Vanette compact van to Mitsubishi.
