The high-performance Lancer Evolution X takes a place on the stand, embodying the brands fun to drive attitude in a new sport sedan. Evolution combines 290 horsepower with a high-tech gearbox and all wheel drive for rally-like thrills on any road.
Derived from it is the Prototype X- a concept built from the Japanese automakers sport sedan family architecture. Concept-S takes the form of a sleek and aggressive hatchback with styling cues from other Mitsubishi performance cars like the Lancer Evolution.
There's a combination of a slanted nose and trapezoidal grille to communicate Mitsubishi's new performance car design to showgoers- and the look is no empty threat. Prototype S packs a 2.0 litre, turbocharged 240 horsepower engine that drives all four wheels by a twin-clutch gearbox and sophisticated AWD system. Sounds like a threat to Subaru's WRX.
The I-MiEV (or I-EV as it's called in some markets) will also be on display at the show. I-MiEV is a new electric vehicle that's currently under evaluation in fleet use in Japan for possible export to international markets.
The Geneva Motor Show runs March 4 through March 16.
