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.

2015 Mitsubishi Mirage Review : Long Term Report 1

Something must be up… The grins and giggles that greeted me reached their climax when I got to my desk to find the key of a new – sorry, my new, they insisted – Mitsubishi Mirage long-termer and bright green key ring that correlates with unfortunate accuracy to the car’s paint colour...

Mitsubishi Lancer development shelved

Mitsubishi Motors is no longer planning any development of sedans, meaning replacements for core models such as the aged Lancer won’t materialise for years — if at all. The decision to freeze sedan development in the face of stiff competition, and to focus on SUVs, comes on the heels of Mitsubishi’s proposed co-operation with Renault to source C- and D-segment cars — a plan that has now fallen through...

Mitsubishi plots 'king of PHEVs' to wear Evo badge

Mitsubishi Motors is looking at a viable way to create a dedicated performance plug-in hybrid model — a model it wants to endow with all-wheel-drive and its hallowed Evolution, or Evo, badge. However, a new-generation Lancer remains years way at best — and the program is dead at worst — meaning the next Evo model will have to be based on another Mitsubishi model...
