Mitsubishi Motors Corp. said Wednesday it will spend ¥4 billion ($35 million) to ramp up production capacity at a plant in Indonesia to meet solid demand for its recently launched multipurpose vehicle.

The carmaker will boost production capacity at a plant in Bekasi — on the eastern border of the capital, Jakarta — to 220,000 vehicles by March 2021 from the current 160,000 to boost shipments of its seven-seater Xpander MPV for the Indonesian and other Southeast Asian markets.
