The Colt name was used by Mitsubishi for the first time in 1962. It was used in numerous generations of vehicles that allowed the brand to expand globally. The previous generation of the Colt, which was also manufactured in Europe, sold more than 400,000 units in our continent between 2004 and 2014.
The new Colt will be underpinned by the CMF-B platform Alliance (Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi). It is the same architecture used by the Renault Clio, a model with which it will be closely related at a technical level. In addition, and what is equally relevant, among its mechanical options there will be a hybrid versionwhich will allow you to differentiate yourself from a good part of the offer in segment B.
Frank Krol, President and CEO of Mitsubishi in Europe, placed special emphasis on the fact that this product offensive will radically increase the brand’s range from 2023: “The brand’s offer will increase dramatically in 2023 with the addition of the new Colt and the recently announced ASX, joining the current Space Star and Eclipse Cross PHEVs. The Colt brand is synonymous with Mitsubishi Motors’ long history in the B-segment. We look forward to writing a new chapter in the history of Colt and our brand in Europe.”
