Mitsubishi plans ‘Colt-successor' for the United States around 2012Thu, 03 Dec 2009 00:00:00 -0800
Mitsubishi plans to bring a global small car to the United States sometime around 2012. It would be the successor to the Colt small car currently sold in Europe and Asia.
The new car would be all-new, and the name has not been decided yet, a spokesman said, referring to it as the “Colt-successor.”
“There's obviously a need for a very small car,” Mitsubishi spokesman Moe Durand said.
Look for a small-displacement engine as the company looks to meet stricter fuel-economy standards.
