Teased in these renderings for the first time, the global small vehicle will be produced in a new factory currently being built in Thailand and will go on sale at the end of next year. The subcompact hatch will make use of a new platform and will be offered with 1.0-1.2-liter engines. Mitsubishi said that the "global small" car will be positioned as an entry-level model in MMC's model lineup. The plans are to export the vehicle from Thailand to markets worldwide although the Japanese automaker did not reveal any details about country-specific availability.
The production version of the low-cost city car will most likely be revealed at the upcoming Geneva Salon in March 2011.
