After the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance announced the mid-term plans for the next few years in late May 2020, things are looking up for the Alliance. Initially worried with Alliance Ventures thought to be in jeopardy not too long ago. The new strategy for the Alliance is a “Follow-the-Leader” scheme where one automaker releases a new vehicle in one segment into one region of focus for sales. If it’s successful, another vehicle from the same segment will be released by one of the other automakers in their region of focus. There is some worry about how this will affect Mitsubishi Motors and models that make it overseas, with Mitsubishi sales faltering in the U.S. and Japan market, but there is still hope. Mitsubishi Motors is also the first automaker to release a vehicle from the Alliance, and it’s a C/D segment vehicle – smaller than an SUV.

Hooray! Finally, something other than an SUV from the Japanese automaker. It’s been years since we saw anything that wasn’t a sports utility vehicle or a plug-in hybrid SUV – the Eclipse Cross doesn’t count, crossover or not. We’re waiting for a true-blooded racing car, and the Eclipse being turned into a crossover just won’t cut it. Mitsubishi Motors has mentioned that the Lancer is going to be revived as a crossover as well but is supposed to be engineered to be a “high-performance” SUV. We’re not sure what that means – maybe this SUV is supposed to be able to tackle the racetrack?

Mitsubishi Motors Over the Last 100 Years

Miami Lakes 2017 Mitsubishi 100 Year Anniversary

This year, Mitsubishi Motors is celebrating their 100-year Anniversary. It’s quite the milestone for any company, and it makes one think back on how it all started. Even moreso, where is the motor company heading now? Before thinking about the future, we need to take a step back to where it all began.

1917

Mitsubishi Motors was born in the early 1900s, and their very first automobile was the Mitsubishi Model-A. Not a fancy name, but the vehicle was designed for luxury and important people. Sort of like horse-drawn carriages, one would expect someone important is traveling, so it makes sense. We don’t expect many of our readers to remember the world 100 years ago, but if you do, you might remember World War I was being fought.

1962

In 1961 Mitsubishi found their passion … racing. They entered and set a track record at an international motorsports event with their new vehicle, the Mitsubishi 500 Super Deluxe. However, even with international acknowledgement, Mitsubishi was still mostly in Japan in the 60’s, and it would be a little while until they came to America. Here in the states, you may remember Martin Luther King Jr, the top Soul Brother that changed a country.

1971

Here’s when Mitsubishi started to really make a name for themselves, research electric vehicle technology, and shortly after becoming the first automaker to massively market an electric vehicle. This is also the year they came to America, but to break the ice, their vehicle was bought and sold by Dodge under the veil of the Dodge Colt for more than 20 years. The 1970s were largely a time of change with many people of color and gender fighting for their rights, and protests against the ongoing Vietnam War.
