Part of the vast Renault Nissan Mitsubishi alliance that combined is the world’s third biggest manufacturer, Mitsubishi might be the junior partner but is the fastest growing.

Back in 1917, Mitsubishi launched the seven-seat Model A, Japan’s first series-production car.

It only sold 22, so clearly there was scope for greater success. By 1934 Mitsubishi Heavy Industries was the largest private company in Japan, only to be broken into three parts post-war by the Allied powers.

The three parts reformed in 1964 and within three years was producing more than 75,000 vehicles annually. The introduction of the Galant in 1969 saw the formation of the dedicated Mitsubishi Motor Company (MMC) in 1970. It expanded into the US in 1982 and went public in 1988.

Nameplates like Pajero, Lancer and the Australian-built Magna established a reputation for solid dependability.

That dependability is now bolstered by financial stability. With plans to launch 35 EVs by 2030 across five new platforms, the alliance affords Mitsubishi the opportunity to rapidly refresh its product line up.

Vehicles such as the revitalised Outlander SUV demonstrate the steps Mitsubishi has taken to revitalise what had long been perceived as an aged portfolio. The most popular plug-in hybrid SUV in Australia, the Outlander PHEV, now has an 80km electric range and looks set to cement its position as a low-emission family favourite.

Dependable vehicles such as the ASX compact SUV and the Triton dual-cab ute keep up dealership footfall, with buyers attracted to one of the longest warranty deals around.

The five-year, 100,000km standard warranty can be extended to 10 years and 200,000km if the vehicle is serviced at a Mitsubishi authorised outlet.
