The Mitsubishi Carisma is a large family car produced for the European market by Mitsubishi Motors from 1995 to 2004. The model name comes from a combination of the English car and the Greek Kharisma, meaning "divine gift". It was co-developed with Volvo, sharing its chassis with the first generation Volvo S40, and built at NedCar factory in Born, Netherlands, which the two companies co-owned at the time. More than 350,000 were built during its production run.
Available as a 4-door saloon or 5-door hatchback, it featured gasoline engines from 1.6 L (introduced later in life) to 1.8 L, a 1.8 L gasoline direct injection engine, and 90 hp (67 kW) 1.9 L turbodiesel powerplants from Renault, later with the 100 hp (70 kW) 1.9 DI-D common rail diesel engine, as used in both Volvo and Renault cars.
Despite its name, the Carisma had a fairly neutral design as a result of being the first attempt Mitsubishi to target traditional conservative European company car market. Even when receiving a Midlife facelift in 1999 that characteristic was not improved. The car was placed between the Lancer and the Galant, although after production ended, the Lancer took its place in the European range of Mitsubishi.
In some markets where the Lancer was not available, the Evolution version was rebadged as a Mitsubishi Carisma GT. In Japan, it is sold at a certain retail chain called Car Plaza.
The chassis is also used by Proton to develop the Proton Waja.
