Mitsubishi Concept Global Small - The 2012 Mitsubishi Colt
We had a little teaser sketch in from Mitsubishi back in December telling us about their ‘Mitsubishi Concept Global Small’. Which obviously arrived on a busy day, or didn’t tickle our fancy, as we don’t appear to have run the story. Not that there was much of a story, just the sketch.
Still, let’s put things right. Mitsubishi has announced that it will be taking the ‘Mitsubishi Concept Global Small‘ to the Geneva Motor Show in March. The concept is said to preview an upcoming sub-compact model, which Mitsubishi plans to start building in March 2012 in a new factory in Thailand – their third – with an initial capacity of 150,000 units a year.
Mitsubishi say this ‘Concept Global Small’ concentrates on being compact, affordable and fuel efficient. Which we could probably have guessed. They say it will seat five adults (much as the Mitsubishi i-MiEV can seat four policemen and their gubbins, no doubt) and will come with stop-start, regenerative braking, low rolling resistance tyres, a CVT ‘box and a choice of 1.0 or 1.2 litre engines.
Just call it the 2012 Mitsubishi Colt. It’s easier.
