Mitsubishi releases the first teaser (above) of a yet unnamed Crossover model in view of its official unveiling at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show (March 8-18). This car will also anticipate the new design language that the Japanese carmaker will adopt for most of its future models, and is expected to go on sale in several markets around the globe in the second half of the year.
The teaser shows us just a shaded glimpse of the front of this mysterios car, hence there is not much else that we can say about it for now. However, the lines of its grille and the layout of the headlights are pretty reminiscent of the PX-MiEV II Concept - that was firstly introduced at the 2011 Tokyo Auto Salon - whereas that large air-intake integrated in the front bumper looks more similar to what we had seen on the first PX-MiEV Concept, displayed at the same event in 2009. That prototype was equipped with an hybrid powertrain featuring a 2.0-litre 4-cylinder engine and two electric motors producing 81 hp, so we would expect the new model to have a similar powertrain as well. We expect more teasers and info about this car to surface before its debut in Geneva.
