Last year, Massilia Motors, the sole distributor of Mitsubishi vehicles in Nigeria, announced it will discontinue the sale of Mitsubishi Pajero SUV in the country, starting 2021.

It follows the decision of the Japanese multinational automotive manufacturer, Mitsubishi, to stop the production of the 7-seater model from 2021 due to declining sales.

After a successful 39 year run and more than 3.3 million global sales since its arrival in the market in 1982, Mitsubishi released a special-edition run to bid a deserved goodbye to the popular SUV.

The final limited-edition model, which are due in showrooms within weeks, are being sold in some markets as 2022 models. The last batch comes with ‘Final Edition‘ badging as well as a few extras, including a larger fuel tank.
