Production of Mitsubishi Concept-ZT cancelled

Plans to put Mitsubishi’s Concept-ZT into production have been cancelled. Company bosses have decided there is no business case for a car that would be positioned against the BMW 3-Series.

Previewed by the four-door concept at last year’s Tokyo motorshow, the ZT would have slotted into the firm’s range between the Lancer and the American-market Galant.

The concept used an aluminium spaceframe body, an ultra-clean 2.2-litre turbo-diesel engine and the Evo’s four-wheel drive system. Mitsubishi had been considering putting the ZT into production with a steel body and an unchanged drivetrain.
