Mitsubishi has announced they will not be getting a rebadged Renault-Nissan model in the near future.

It was November 2013 when Mitsubishi teamed up with the Renault-Nissan alliance to work on a joint project which among others included getting a couple of rebadged sedans. Mitsubishi knows they are in dire need of a portfolio expansion but it seems that won't happen in the near future as the "plan has stalled", according to Don Swearingen who is the executive vice-president of Mitsubishi Motors North America.

One of the cars was supposed to be a D-segment (mid-size) sedan which North American dealers have been patiently waiting for quite some time. Swearingen refused to elaborate on the matter and said during a NADA meeting the plan has reached an impasse. After the dealer meeting, he declared "all options are still open" but didn't go into any specifics.

It's not known at this moment whether the disagreement is limited only to the mid-size sedan or to the entire partnership which includes "several new projects covering shared products, technologies and manufacturing capacity."
