Mitsubishi dubbed their flagship, the Dignity, to denote
at least they’ve got a good starting point – the China-only Infiniti M35h LWB.
Previous Dignity/Proudia versions have been twinned with the Korean market Hyundai Equus, but with that alliance over, Mitsubishi turned to Nissan for some help, in the form of a badge engineered Nissan Fuga, or as we know it, Infiniti M.
Mitsubishi didn’t really do much to differentiate the Dignity, or the short-wheelbase, non-hybrid Proudia, from their Infiniti/Nissan counterparts. The mechanical bits are all identical too; the Proudia has the Nissan VQ staple engines, in 2.5L or 3.7L trim, with the big engine offering all-wheel drive. The Dignity comes solely with the hybrid powertrain. The only question that hasn’t been answered so far is “who the hell is going to buy this?”
