Mitsubishi Motors Corporation today debuts the Outlander EX*1 on-road Sport Utility Vehicle at the Beijing Motor Show 2006. The show is being held from November 18 (November 21 for the general public). Also on display are the Lancer Evolution IX high-performance 4WD sports sedan that went on sale in China this October, the Mitsubishi Concept-Sportback that shows how a next-generation sportback concept car may look, and the Eclipse Spyder that is currently selling very strongly in the North American Market. In total, the company is showing 7 vehicles.


1. Outlander EX

Outlander, very favorably received in the Japanese and North American markets, is going to go on sale in China in January 2007 with the name Outlander EX. Outlander EX is the same as the North American market Outlander and will be powered by a new high performance, low emission, low fuel consumption 3-liter V6 MIVEC engine, coupled to a 6-speed automatic transmission to deliver outstanding acceleration and high-speed cruising performance. Fully embracing Mitsubishi Motors' All Wheel Control (AWC) concept, Outlander EX uses Mitsubishi's electronically controlled 4WD system that continuously distributes front/rear wheel drive torque in an optimal way according to conditions.
Outlander sits on a next-generation platform that features enhanced stiffness and crashworthiness, together with an aluminum roof panel that lowers the center of gravity; this reduces roll inertia, improves steering response and handling, and reduces body roll and stagger without impacting ride quality. Outlander EX boasts a high level of specification, including a split tailgate that enhances convenience and loading ease. A spare tire is fitted as standard for the Chinese market.

2. Lancer Evolution IX

Lancer Evolution IX, the iconic high performance sport sedan that went on sale in China this October, employs a turbocharged, intercooled 2-liter engine with electronically controlled 4WD system that results in extremely high levels of acceleration, grip and braking. The launch in China follows very successful launches in Japan, North America, and Europe.

3. Mitsubishi Concept-Sportback

Mitsubishi Concept-Sportback shows how a next-generation sportback car may look and was showcased at 2005 Frankfurt International Motor Show. The direction Mitsubishi Motors' design that is set to take in the near future is readily apparent in the concept's exterior. Mitsubishi Motor R&D Europe GmbH (MRDE), located in Germany, created an arresting form that features sporty lines embodying Mitsubishi Motors' sporty DNA, a front visage that gives prominence to the 3-diamond logo, and proportions that give full expression to the vehicle concept.

4. Eclipse Spyder

Eclipse Spyder, sold in the North America Market and produced by Mitsubishi Motors North America Inc. (MMNA), is the convertible version of the fourth-generation Eclipse and the third generation of Eclipse Spyder. This sports car has been very favorably received in North America Market.
