Mitsubishi Space Wagon Overview

The Mitsubishi Space Wagon came in different names: Chariot, Expo, and Nimbus. The Space Wagon is an MPV or a multi-purpose vehicle offered by Mitsubishi from 1983 to 2003. The Space Wagon was based on the SSW concept car that was first introduced at the 23rd Tokyo Motor Show in 1979. It was named Chariot because of the chariots of the ancient Greek and Roman empires. The first generation Mitsubishi Space Wagon was launched during the early 1980s. The Space Wagon marched on to the next generation with a change in model during the early 1990s. It was launched with a 1.8L carbureted engine. In 1997, an updated version came out with electronic fuel injection with additional power to accommodate an automatic transmission. Presently, the Space Wagon is no longer in existence, however with its nonexistence came a number of modern MPVs, including Grandis from Mitsubishi which is its successor.


The Mitsubishi Space Wagon was produced from February 1983 to May 1991 where choices of power plants are available: 1.6L 4G32 to the 2.0L 4G63 petrol engine or the 1.8L 4D65T turbodiesel (from October 1984), partnered with a five-speed manual or three-speed automatic transmission.
