It's startling how much it resembles the 1st-generation Prius, especially in profile. Sad.
It doesn't seem like Mitsubishi is every going to recover. This is actually very sad.
It seems that they and Suzuki are battling it out for who can be the more irrelevant car company.If the two teamed up and pooled resources, Mitsu could take on Kia and Scion with urban-hip-young-fun-cool cars, and Suzuki can be the more mature, poor-man's mercedes brand to take on Hyundai, Ford, VW, and Toyota.
I'm really trying to figure out how someone does not get fired for even proposing something as horrible as this design, much less wasting the resources to develop the concept vehicle. Good Lord.
Mitsubishi, I believe, is gearing down and disappearing ....
It looks like the Nissan Versa Sedan clone to me!
Good luck to Mitsu to fight this car:http://www.netcarshow.com/peugeot/2013-301/800x600/wallpaper_19.htmIt is made for the same market.
I too am very sad for Mitsubishi. (And I work for a competing car manufacturer). As a teen in the 80s and 90s, I'd look to Mitsubishi as a source of inspiration- Their technical innovations and concepts were second to none. What happened? I hope they can find their way and reclaim their greatness.
Mitsubishi used to be considered an innovative, youthful brand. In the 80s, it rode the same wave as the rest of the Japanese brands. But Mitsubishi was much more technology-focused because their engines were turbocharged. Plus the design of their dashboards were exciting because they borrowed cues from Mitsubishi electronics during a time when personal audio was a new and exciting industry. Sadly, they've gone down the path of most Japanese brands, and have become boring, outdated and poorly designed. They will probably end up like Suzuki and Isuzu, who are gone.
