Mitsubishi to explore past and future at motor show

Mitsubishi Motors has announced that it will be exploring its past as well as its future at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show.

A few weeks after it debuted its Lancer sports sedan at the Detroit Motor Show, Mitsubishi claims that the event at Geneva will be “another occasion for celebration”.

On display will be an exact replica of the Model-A, which was built in 1917 and represented Japan’s first attempt at series production of passenger cars.

Commenting on the model, the automaker said: “This vehicle was then a pioneer and Mitsubishi has been an innovator ever since.”

Also on show will be a vehicle to represent the Mitsubishi of today – the new Outlander. This 4×4 is described as a “very legitimate SUV, challenging an increasingly crowded and predictable segment with design, technology and features to suit”.

Finally, the future of Mitsubishi will be available for all to see in the shape of the Prototype-X version of the Lancer Evolution.

“Prototype-X will also demonstrate to the European public the depth and breadth of the forthcoming Lancer sports sedan family, ranging from entry model (1.5l in Europe) right up to the all-new Lancer Evolution, the range-topping ‘super-car’,” Mitsubishi said.

The next version of the Lancer Evolution is designed to offer enhanced handling dynamics and technology while still offering impressive turbo engine performance.
