The dynamic, reliable, and innovative models of Mitsubishi pass through many hands and eyes before they hit the showroom at West Side Mitsubishi. Mitsubishi’s team of engineers, designers, leaders and car lovers are constantly pushing our historic brand forward, as they have for over 130 years. Though Mitsubishi is a historic Japanese automotive company, establishing our legacy as an automotive leader has expanded the company globally. Currently, Mitsubishi production facilities exist in Japan, Thailand, and the Philippines. Though Mitsubishi doesn’t operate a current North American production plant, many Mitsubishis have been built on North American soil! And with numerous dealerships operating across over 160 countries, Mitsubishi is a true global industry leader, and you’re able to explore that international innovation right over at West Side Mitsubishi in Edmonton!
Former North American Production Plant
Mitsubishi’s North American manufacturing run started as Diamond-Star motors, a joint operation with Chrysler back in 1985. Only a few years later, Mitsubishi saw amazing success in the North American market, and bought out Chrysler, turning Diamond-Star motors into the historic Mitsubishi Motor Manufacturing of America. Though the plant closed in 2015, the effect it had can still be seen through the amount of Lancers, Outlanders and other Mitsubishi models still on the road today. Many of those models were produced right here in North America.
Current Mitsubishi Facilities
As a Japanese company, Mitsubishi has three state-of-the-art production facilities located domestically. These facilities produce revered Mitsubishi vehicles such as the Outlander, Outlander PHEV, RVR, and Eclipse Cross. Japan also houses our company’s head office, four research and development centres and two design centers! Mitsubishi’s two other production facilities are located in Thailand and the Philippines. Both facilities produce a number of international models, chiefly the Mitsubishi cars, along with the Mitsubishi Mirage, while the Phillippines facility also produces the Mirage G4!
