The last thing an auto manufacturer wants is for potential buyers – that is, anyone with a driver’s licence and a bank account – to be unaware of its products. While most driving Canadians know about Mitsubishi, many are not familiar with the Endeavor SUV.

2011 Mitsubishi RVR GT 4WD

This gallery contains 5 photos.

According to the kids in my ‘hood, if you put your pajamas on backwards and do the “snow dance” (whatever that is), you’ll get a snow day.

Solely for the sake of our readers, I braved the sprinkles for the joy of driving with that fabric top down. (I hope you appreciate it.)

Mitsubishi is not letting the electric-propulsion movement pass it by. The iMiev microcar presented at the CIAS: “Is not a concept car or wishful thinking; it is a very real, practical battery-electric vehicle that has been tested for the past two years in Japan” says David Patterson, leader of the iMiev joint project on this continent. iMiev, by the way, stands for: ‘i’ platform, Mitsubishi, innovative, electric vehicle.

The CIAS display for Mitsubishi is a bit sparse this year. But hey, that seems to be the general theme for most manufacturers in these tough economic times. Mitsubishi’s big feature at CIAS this year is the MiEV concept. Continue reading
