Who Makes Mitsubishi Cars?

After the shipbuilding division split in the early 1900s, Japan’s first mass-produced passenger car, the Mitsubishi Model A, was released. Who owns the Mitsubishi Motor Corporation? The Mitsubishi Motor Sales Corporation was established in the 1960s. In the 1970s, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. became the sole shareholder of the newly-established Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC). 

In the early 1980s, Mitsubishi Motor Sales of America Inc. was established as a joint capital investment with the Mitsubishi Corporation. The Mitsubishi Motors Sales Corporation took over operations soon after. Car production was terminated at Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. in 2015. In 2016, MMC and Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. joined forces in a strategic alliance agreement regarding capital and business alliances.
