The Mitsubishi Grandis a seven seater MUV car which is manufactured and marketed by Mitsubishi Motors that replaced its older model Mitsubishi Chariot and Nimbus line. It was first showcased on May 14, 2003 and was sold in Japan, Asia, Europe, Oceania, Mexico, Honduras, Jamaica, and South America thereafter. Engines available were a 2.4-litre four-cylinder and a Volkswagen-sourced 2.0-litre turbodiesel, badged DI-D rather than TDI as Volkswagen denotes it.
The exterior styling was based loosely on designer Olivier Boulay earlier model Mitsubishi Space Liner, a monobox four-seat concept vehicle with centre-opening suicide doors, first exhibited at the Tokyo Motor Show in 2001.
It was the first all new vehicle featuring the company's new common face, comprising a curved lower grille edge and a sharp crease rising up the leading edge of the bonnet from the prominent corporate badge. It shared its platform with the Mitsubishi Airtrek minus the increased ground clearance.
The Grandis was also the basis for the Mitsubishi FCV concept, powered by a fuel cell technology developed by then controlling shareholder DaimlerChrysler. DCX's FC System uses a fuel cell stack to replenish an array of NiMH batteries from 117 litres of compressed hydrogen storage. Mitsubishi Grandis won the Best MPV award at the Bangkok International Motor Show from 2005 to 2010.
