A Guide to the Mitsubishi Motors Booth

[ Theme and concept ]

"Does your car give you enough exhilaration?"
New encounters, surprises, revelations, exhilaration, and heart-throbbing sensations ·these are just some of the experiences your car may provide.
Mitsubishi Motors, the creator of "Heart Beat Motors," has created a range of models that offer a new level of communication between man and automobiles.

[ Characteristics of the booth ]

The booth is designed to vividly present exciting relationships to be built around man and automobiles. For instance, it deliberately incorporates a minimalist space devoid of all extraneous decorative elements, as well as a space where natural materials and lighting are delicately arranged. The resulting juxtaposition of cool composure from the bare materials themselves, with the emotionality that derives from the materials, leads to expressions that totally differ from their original looks. The two elements have been elevated to a new height of coexistence.

Points of Interest: Showcased vehicles [ Major Models on Exhibit (Concept test car) ]
"i" concept test car (Premiere appearance in Japan)
"i" is a compact-size concept test car which will serve as a model for the next generation of small cars, which will be built on the newly developed MR Platform, where a newly engineered 1.0-liter engine is mounted in the midship.
In the FIA/ADAC Eco Test, an environmental performance test conducted by Allgemeiner Deutscher Automobil-Club, "i" successfully met the Euro 4 emissions and 90-grams-per-kilometer Three Liter Car fuel economy standards with an average fuel consumption of 3.8 liters/100 kilometers and with CO2 emissions of 89 grams per kilometer. Also, it was the first car to be awarded the highest 5-star ratings in both categories of fuel consumption and emissions testing.

"i" reflects Mitsubishi Motors·quest to provide more room inside than the actual dimensions suggest, and for securing superior protection against collisions - the challenges faced by all models in the small-car category.
In Japan, a small car to be modeled after "i" is scheduled to debut at the end of 2005, so "i" is not just another concept car but has a solid future, with commercialization in the pipeline.

SE·RO is a concept car which, like "i" is built on the newly developed MR platform. Scaled down to the size of a light-motor vehicle, SE·RO uses a newly developed 0.66-liter engine, which sits nicely in the midship of the MR platform.
With a roomier interior and seating arrangements thanks to the new design package, this one-box shaped car proposes mature adults new lifestyle variations that go beyond the values conventionally presented by light motor vehicles. Both "SE·RO" and "i" are bold attempts by Mitsubishi Motors to create vehicles that capture the essence of future lifestyles in advance and to generate wider interest around the world in the light motor vehicle category, which has been a category unique to Japan. With this model, Mitsubishi Motors offers a variety of new lifestyles including getting together with friends and heading for a party together, making the interior function as a place for having fun when going on an outing.
