  • Mitsubishi Dignity VIP luxury hybrid sedan

    The easiest way to make a car is to get someone else to make it for you. That's the ethos Mitsubishi is subscribing to anyway, as it announces the Dignity, a luxury hybrid sedan for its home Japanese market. Rather than designing a luxury hybrid sedan from scratch, the Dignity is actually based on a long-wheelbase version of the Infiniti M35h, and uses its same 359-horsepower hybrid drivetrain, pairing 3.5-liter gasoline V-6 with an electric motor. That makes it Mitsubishi's first hybrid vehicle on sale, jumping the carmaker's first in-house project, the Outlander plug-in hybrid due this...

The M35h offers electric-only running for a mile or more (Infiniti says 1.2 miles) at speeds up...
