Japanese car maker Mitsubishi may be interested in opening an engine factory in Romania, which would require an investment of over EUR 200 million, according to local media.
Mitsubishi may thus become the fourth international car maker that establishes a production unit in Romania, after Renault, Ford, and Daimler. However, they haven’t made a decision yet and are also looking at Hungary and Slovakia.
A Mitsubishi delegation went to the Government this week to see what facilities the Romanian state would be willing to offer to support this investment. The Government offered state aid to American group Ford for its car and engine factory in Craiova and to German group Daimler for its gearbox factory in Sebes.
Mitsubishi is now part of the Renault-Nissan alliance and Carlos Gosh, the head of the Renault-Nissan alliance has also taken over as CEO of Mitsubishi.
