Mitsubishi’s History of Innovation
Mitsubishi’s story began with the engineering of the the first ever Mitsubishi car that carried the three-diamond emblem, the Mitsubishi Model A. From the 22-car production of Japan’s first series-produced vehicle, the vehicle company has gone a long way in developing innovative cars while providing solutions for optimally conserving energy and resources. Already made its mark worldwide, Mitsubishi continues to develop and engineer quality performance vehicles like its class-leading sport utility vehicles.
