The CMC Zinger (Chinese: 中華雙贏, originally the Mitsubishi Zinger before 2015) is a compact MPV designed by Mitsubishi Motors in conjunction with the China Motor Corporation from Taiwan, based on the chassis of the Mitsubishi Challenger, and sold in Taiwan from 24 December 2005. The name derives from a "person or something full of energy and vitality". From 2007 until 2016, 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".
The first month's sales were 2,285, substantially exceeding the 1,200/month initial target. 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.
In October 2015 the 4G69 engine was detuned from 159 to 136 PS (117 to 100 kW) with peak torque engine speed lowered from 4500 to 2300 rpm, incorporated with a new 5-speed automatic transmission, which replaced both the earlier 4-speed automatic as well as the manual transmission. In Taiwan the car switched from Mitsubishi and was now marketed with CMC motors logos.
The Mitsubishi Fuzion was removed from the Mitsubishi Philippines website in 2016. While from 2015, the Zinger received a mild facelift, and was transferred into a product branded as CMC following the recent change of CMC repositioning itself as a domestic Taiwanese car brand. The facelift includes CMC logo replacements and the signature CMC front grille and bumper design.
