2011 Mitsubishi Concept Global Small

The Geneva Auto Show is still two months away and Mitsubishi has already announced its lineup for the event. Among the many vehicles that are already on sale, Mitsubishi will also be bringing the Concept Global Small (show model). This concept car is really no different than all of the other small cars coming out as its main goal is to be compact, affordable, and highly fuel efficient.

The Concept Global Small is a preview version of a new model that will go into production starting March 2012 at the MMC’s third factory in Thailand. Despite its compact sizes, the new Concept Global Small offers enough interior room for five adults and offers good maneuverability and easy operation.

The concept will be powered by a choice of 1.0 or 1.2 liter compact engines equipped with a regenerative braking system and start-stop mechanism. Other features will include reduced running resistance in the engine, new-generation CVT, brakes, and tires, and a body shape that greatly reduces aerodynamic resistance.

The Concept Global Small will be sold in Thailand for 400,000 Thai baht (or $13,119 at the current rates).

this car has put function before form usually look bland especially cheap ones like this. They did a good job of making it look graceful and easy to look at and not at all like an appliance.

This car is shaped by the wind tunnel to be as fuel efficient as possible. It is also designed to appeal to as many people as possible. Funky design cues for the sake of being funky were wisely avoided.
