Mitsubishi Motors North America is getting a new CEO. Ryujiro Kobashi will take over in March. Kobashi says he looks forward to the new opportunity as Mitsubishi navigates the U.S. market under the "New Stage 2016" business plan. The company with a plant in Normal had been headed by Yoichi Yokozawa since 2011. Yokozawa oversaw three product launches in the U.S. and Canada and the start of production of the Outlander Sport in central Illinois. Yokozawa will return to Japan for another assignment in the company's planning office.
