Mitsubishi, one of the world’s oldest car companies, didn’t originally start out as a car company. They got their start as a shipping company, owning over a fleet of over 70 ships. Over the years, they evolved into a popular automobile manufacturer, creating the company you’re familiar with today.

Fun Facts

Want to know some more fun facts about this company?

Mitsubishi also built Japan’s first early warning weather system. This came after a typhoon killed more than 5,000 people in 1959 off the coast of the Kii Peninsula. In addition to this accomplishment, Mitsubishi also began to develop some of the first space vehicles in Japan.

Alliances

Mitsubishi has a history of partnering with other car manufacturers. In the 1980s, the company partnered with Chrysler to create both compact and subcompact cars. Chrysler eventually ended up with stock in the company. Colt, Lonsdale, Hyundai, Samcor, Proton, Volvo, Suzuki, Hindustan, Volvo Trucks, Groupe PSA, Volkswagen, Nisaan, Renault, and several smaller Chinese car automotive manufacturers have also been partners with Mitsubishi throughout the past several decades. The other Mitsubishi brands have consistently held ownership and stock in the automotive sector as well.

Mitsubishi Sales

According to CarSalesBase, Mitsubishi has sold over almost 3 million cars since 2000. A chart displaying their sales units and growth percentages can be viewed below. In the 1980s, they experienced a significant period of growth. After this, their sales have plateaued for the next several decades. In 2009 they experienced a serious rise in sales, going from averaging around 100,000 vehicles per year to only selling 53,986 units. However, their numbers slowly increased as the years went on. By 2017, they were back to selling 100,000+ cars per year.

Geographic Popularity

Mitsubishi was created in Japan, so naturally they are extremely popular there. However, as they began to expand throughout the world, their popularity was not as it was expected to be. Due to financial mishaps and other retailers having hefty marketing campaigns, their sales plateaued. See the sales section above for more information. Despite not being as popular in the West, their international sales have begun to increase as they have added SUVs and more unique types of vehicles to their lineup.

Currently, all Mitsubishi cars are made in Japan, with their headquarters located in Minato, Tokyo. They are sold in Asia, North America, and other continents across the globe.
