Mitsubishi Motors Corp., faced with an expiring union contract at its only plant in North America, declined to comment Thursday on a report that it planned to end auto production in the United States.

Japan's Nikkei news service said the move to cease production at Mitsubishi's factory in Normal, Ill., is part of a strategic shift to the growing Asian market.

The company has "no statement," said a spokesperson for Mitsubishi Motors North America. A source familiar with the company's strategy said:  "We have no plans to stop selling. We are concentrating on enhancing our selling in the United States."
