Mitsubishi will debut its all-new Lancer sedan in the U.S. nearly six months ahead of its debut in the company's domestic market of Japan. Inside Line notes that the U.S. will be the Lancer's biggest market by far, and that the Japanese market is more interested in minicars at the moment than midsize sedans. Those two facts are the maini reason's behind the company's decision to begin selling the Lancer in the States first. The debut for the car in the U.S. is slated for early or mid next year, at which time we'll get a larger Lancer based on the Concept X and its many variants.
