The Mitsubishi Zinger is a MPV designed by Mitsubishi Motors in conjunction with the China Motor Corporation, based on the chassis of the Mitsubishi Challenger, and sold in Taiwan from December 24, 2005.[1] The name derives from a "person or something full of energy and vitality".[1] Since June 2007 it has also been marketed in the Philippines as the Mitsubishi Fuzion, as the company claims it "merges together the best characteristics of [three] vehicles, the sporty character and ruggedness of an SUV, the spaciousness and versatility of a van, and riding comfort of a passenger car".[2]

The first month's sales were 2,285, substantially exceeding the 1,200/month initial target.[1] The companies planned to expand into mainland China in the second half of 2007 when a joint-production venture between CMC and South East (Fujian) Motor Co., Ltd. came onstream.[1]

The 4-speed automatic model engine was replaced by a 4G69 MIVEC-equipped version at the end of 2008, in order to meet new emissions standards.[3] The 5-speed manual model still use the 4G64 engine.
