Mitsubishi Motors Corporation and its European unit Mitsubishi Motors Europe B.V. will unveil The Mitsubishi Concept-cX at the 62nd Internationale Automobil Ausstellung (IAA; commonly known as the Frankfurt Motor Show) in September. Held at the Frankfurt Messe Complex, the 2007 Frankfurt Motor Show will be open to the public from September 15 through 23, wîth press and media pre-viewing September 11 through 14.
The Mitsubishi Concept-cX represents a new-generation compact SÚV, realizing an ideal balance between environmental and everyday practical performance. The concept car uses a new high-output, high-efficiency 1.8-liter clean diesel engine, featuring a variable geometry (VG) turbocharger for optimum boost control and a diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) wîth diesel particulate filter (DPF) in the exhaust system for compliance wîth Europe's Euro 5 emission standards. ( posted on conceptcarz.com) Mitsubishi's new Twin Clutch SST (Sport Shift Transmission) adds superior power transmission efficiency for a powertrain that delivers nimble performance alongside excellent fuel economy and low emissions. Among the number of new environmental technologies applied in the Concept-cX is the extensive use of interior trim materials made from Mitsubishi's own Green Plastic - made from bamboo and other plant-based resins -- in a step to stop global warming and slow the depletion of our oil reserves.
Mitsubishi Concept-cX offers a number of proposals for better utility and road performance. Its high seating position expands the driver's field of view, providing the drivability expected in a SÚV; the 4100 mm compact body makes for easy maneuvering around town; and the split tailgate -- already well received on other Mitsubishi models -- for easy loading and unloading of luggage. In the performance department, Concept-cX uses Mitsubishi's electronically controlled 4WD system driven through large 225/45R19 tires to deliver intuitive handling and outstanding stability on all road surfaces.
- Dual peace of mind -
Building upon 70 years of four-wheel drive expertise, Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) is in a privileged position to appreciate the customer benefits of this technology, in terms of on-road active safety and off-road ability, from Lancer Evolution to Pajero.
At the occasion of the 62nd Frankfurt Motor Show, MMC will combine this dynamic fluency wîth the first tangible demonstration in Europe of its regionalised environmental strategy, previewing the CO2-friendly next generation Euro 5 Clean Diesel family of engines co-developed wîth its parent company, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd.
As a showcase for this dual 'peace of mind', Mitsubishi Motors will unveil Mitsubishi Concept-cX* in Frankfurt: an accessible, affordable, sustainable and realistic solution to today's pressing issues. Sporty and flexible, Mitsubishi Concept-cX will follow the popular compact SÚV route to carry this message right at the heart of the market.
Featuring the 'Jet Fighter' grille already seen wîth Lancer Sports Sedan and using a soft-road application of the Outlander-derived Electric control four-wheel drive drivetrain, the 4.10m long Mitsubishi Concept-cX will also intend to create a link between Mitsubishi's passenger cars and SÚVs.
Sharp in design and in dynamics, Mitsubishi Concept-cX will boast an excellent environmental performance to be seen in the low fuel consumption and emission levels achieved by its next generation 1.8-litre Clean Diesel engine, mated to an automated manual transmission. (posted on conceptcarz.com) A preview of a family of powertrains to be launched in the course of 2009, it features a variable geometry diffuser (VG) turbocharger – to generate optimum boost pressure for all engine loads – and DPF technologies.
Mitsubishi Concept-cX's further green credentials include eco-friendly 'Green Plastics', MMC's proprietary plant-based resin technology, effectively used for interior trim materials.
As a reminder, Mitsubishi Motors Corporation has adopted an all-embracing approach in addressing global environmental issues. Únder its 'EIP 2010' ('Environment Initiative Program 2010') umbrella project, the Company is actively engaged in the development of a wide range of such technologies, covering:
o Powertrains suiting regional needs, driving patterns & infrastructures:
+ Clean Diesel Euro 5 family of engines for Europe
+ MiEV next-generation electric vehicle for Japan
+ Flexible fuel vehicle for Brazil
o Materials (plant-based 'Green Plastic',...)
o Processes ('Design for Environment' guiding principles,...).
o Manufacturing (pollution-prevention and recycling measures).
o Conservation ('Pajero Forest & Local Mountain Restoration Initiative' aiming to conserve and cultivate Japan's forests and woodlands).Source - Mitsubishi
