The Mitsubishi Motors Corporation is a global automaker based in Tokyo, Japan. While the official manufacturer was only founded in 1970 the origins of Mitsubishi made automobiles dates back to 1917, with Japan’s first ever series produced car – the Mitsubishi Model A – of which only 22 were built. The origins of Mitsubishi itself can be traced back to its founder Yatara Iwasaki in 1870.
The name Mitsubishi can be translated directly as “three diamonds” which effectively explains the origins of the company logo.
Over the course of its history, short though it may be in comparison to many other car makers, the Mitsubishi Motors Corporation has remained a subsidiary of the larger Mitsubishi Group. However, it has also had some notable alliances with other manufacturers such as Volvo, Colt and Mitsubishi. In recent years Mitsubishi has been noted for its innovations in the field of electric cars and was one of the first manufacturers to launch a fully electric car as part of its range.
