The Mitsubishi Proudia and Dignity are two of the latest models with unusual names that have been released in the auto industry. Dignity is priced higher than $100,000. The other odd names that Japanese automakers have come up with are the Mazda Bongo, Nissan Fairlady and Daihatsu Naked. Proudia and Dignity, both luxury sedans, started selling in Japan last June. The Proudia and Dignity are actually rebadged versions of the Nissan Fuga and the Nissan Cima, a hybrid stretch version of the Fuga. It’s interesting to note that they’re actually Nissan models. That’s because Mitsubishi can’t afford to buy its own top-shelf car. The world “Proudia" is derived from "proud" while "dia" is from the "diamonds" in the company's logo.
