Mitsubishi Motors North America of Detroit released the Concept-RA, a coupe that matches high performance with environmental sensitivity. The Concept-RA is powered by a high-output, low-emissions 2.2-l, 4-cylinder, 16-valve turbo diesel engine. To comply with U.S. emissions standards, the diesel relies on a new catalytic converter system that utilizes diesel oxidation catalyst, NOx trap catalyst and diesel particulate filter technologies.
The Concept-RA also makes use of lightweight materials in construction to help reduce vehicle mass for improved performance, fuel economy and safety. The coupe features a new body structure that utilizes an aluminum space frame made from extruded aluminum sections and die-cast aluminum components. The hood, fenders and other outer panels are molded from impact-resistant and easily recycleable plastic resin.
