Mitsubishi Motors announced their vehicle lineup for the 2011 Geneva Motor Show, with the global debut of the Mitsubishi Concept Global Small as the main highlight.

The Mitsubishi Concept Global Small is a small compact aiming towards affordability and high fuel efficiency (CO2 emissions in the mid 90g/Km range) which can accommodate five adults and which is most probably a preview for the next generation Colt.

What enables the Mitsubishi Concept Global Small to achieve high efficiency levels are features like reduced weight, an aerodynamic body, a 1.0 – 1.2L class compact engine equipped with regenerative braking and idling stop technology as well as a new generation CVT.

Other models to be unveiled by the Japanese automaker during press days at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show will be the Mitsubishi i-MiEV and the ASX.
