Mitsubishi Carisma From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Mitsubishi Carisma is a large family car produced for the European market by Mitsubishi from 1995 to 2004. The model name was derived from a combination of the English car and the Greek kharisma, meaning "divine gift", which is why the model was sometimes derided as "a mobile spelling error".
It was co developed with Volvo, sharing its chassis with the first generation of the Volvo S40, and built at the NedCar factory in Born, Netherlands, which the two companies co owned at the time. Over 350,000 were built during its production run. The car was judged to be a reliable, low cost vehicle but lacked visual appeal and competed by price and size in two very competitive markets without a strong selling point
