Mitsubishi

Mitsubishi began building vehicles all the way back in 1917 with the introduction of the Model A (based on the Fiat Tipo). During the 1950s the Japanese company restructured itself to become one of the most successful car companies in the world. In Australia, Mitsubishi sells seven different models including the popular Mirage, Lancer, Outlander, Pajero & Triton. Mitsubishi is currently the seventh best selling brand. It once built the Magna and 380 vehicles locally but has now become a full-time importer of Japanese vehicles.
