Mitsubishi’s upcoming “Low MPV” offering for the Indonesian market, shown so far as the XM Concept, will also be sold as a Nissan model in the republic, according to a news report.

The vehicle, which will apparently be called the Expander in its production form, will be rebadged as a Nissan and sold alongside the Mitsubishi equivalent, Just Auto reports. Both the Mitsubishi and Nissan versions of the seven-seat offering are slated to be introduced ahead of the 2017 Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Show (GIIAS) in August.

It was previously reported that the utility model will have at least nine variants on offer in its Mitsubishi guise, so there will definitely be plenty of variety on call on that front.

The Expander will be built at Mitsubishi’s new Indonesian manufacturing plant in Bekasi, West Java, with series production set to begin in October. The plant, which has a production capacity of 160,000 units a year and is the automaker’s second largest facility in the region, will also build the Pajero Sport for the domestic market.
