Tokyo, February 21, 2019 – Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) will be exhibiting at the 89th Geneva International Motor Show*1, March 5th through 17th, under the company’s global tagline “Drive your Ambition.”

- L200 one-ton pickup (Europe-market model)
Under the Engineered Beyond Tough philosophy that has spawned successive generations of Mitsubishi pickup trucks, the new L200 has been developed to an Ultimate Sport Utility Truck concept. Features include: a powerful design incorporating a new generation of MMC’s DYNAMIC SHIELD front styling; a 4WD system that delivers improved all-terrain performance; and the use of advanced active safety technologies. The L200’s renowned durability and reliability for business use is complemented by improvements in comfort and ride for private customers.
The new L200 uses a newly-developed 2.2L turbodiesel engine mated to 6-speed automatic or manual transmissions to deliver powerful and smooth acceleration and quieter performance. The engine employs the AdBlue®*2 aqueous urea-SCR system to remove NOx emissions from the exhaust gas and is EURO 6d-TEMP compliant.
