India is totally a different market. Hardly anyone tows or goes off-road there. To drop a 3-litre petrol engine into the Pajero (due to emissions or whatever) is to kill it in Australia.
So the model can easily continue in other regions on the same frame and body, but only with a petrol engine as it's much easier to comply to Euro 5 or 6 without compromising performance.
If Mitsubishi decide to drop-in any of the petrol engines recently accessible through the Nissan takeover, well that's a totally different ball game.
