GENEVA – March 3, 2010: Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) today gave the new ASX compact crossover its global debut at the 80th Geneva International Motor Show which runs from March 2 through March 14 at the Geneva Palexpo exhibition and conference complex (opening to the general public on March 4). MMC will display a total of 8 vehicles (11 during public days) including vehicles already sold in Europe and its revolutionary Mitsubishi Concept PX-MiEV*1, which contains the Mitsubishi Plug-in Hybrid System, and was first displayed at the 2009 Tokyo Motor Show.

The ASX compact crossover is the European-spec version of the RVR, which was unveiled on February 17, 2010 in Japan.

The ASX achieves superior environmental efficiency with the combination of its DI-D MIVEC direct-injection diesel engine jointly developed by MMC and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. featuring Automatic Stop & Go and a VG (variable geometry) turbo, mated to a 6-speed manual transmission.

In recent years, the crossover category has grown in the European automobile market, and MMC is responding by adding the compact ASX to its midsize Outlander.

In addition, the Mitsubishi Concept PX-MiEV concept car is installed with the all-new Mitsubishi Plug-in Hybrid System. With the Mitsubishi Plug-in Hybrid System, it runs primarily as an electric vehicle with a gasoline engine in support which, as required, acts as an electric generator or provides an additional source of motive power. The Mitsubishi Concept PX-MiEV is a new-generation crossover that balances high environmental efficiency and motive performance by utilizing electric differential motors and an all-new S-AWC*2 that utilizes E-AYC*3 which controls torque to the rear wheels.
