Where are Mitsubishi vehicles made?

Mitsubishi is well-known for its durable vehicles, particularly its newly revamped crossover and SUV lineup, which is guiding the automaker through a surge in sales. As consumers, you get to see experience the excellence of Mitsubishi vehicles long after they leave the production facility, and sometimes, it’s easy to forget the complexity and detail that goes into building an automobile. With production facilities around the world, you may wonder where your Mitsubishi was made, and how it got to our Aurora, CO showroom.

To give you an idea where 2018 Mitsubishi vehicles were made, let’s take a look at Mitsubishi’s production facilities and see which vehicles are manufactured at each.

It might not surprise you to learn that most Mitsubishi vehicles are assembled in Japan, where Mitsubishi is headquartered. Mitsubishi powertrains are assembled in three Japanese plants, and vehicles are mainly assembled at the company’s Mizushima Vehicle & Powertrain plant.

Mitsubishi also has worldwide facilities in China, Thailand, Russia, and Brazil. While these worldwide production facilities are operational, they don’t all produce vehicles. If you’re wondering where your Mitsubishi vehicle came from, it’s a safe assumption to say it was assembled in Japan.

You may recall Mitsubishi vehicles being built in the U.S. While it’s true Mitsubishi did have a plant in Illinois, where vehicles like the Outlander Sport, Eclipse, Endeavor, and Galant were produced, that plant closed in 2015. When that plant closed, there was rumors about Mitsubishi ending sales in the U.S., but as evidenced by recent growth and sales numbers in America, that couldn’t be farther from the case.

In fact, Mitsubishi Motors America sales were up 24 percent in July 2018 when compared to July 2017. Year-to-date, Mitsubishi sales are up 23.4 percent compared to the same period in 2017.

Mitsubishi continues to build its vehicles where the company is headquartered, but that doesn’t mean it is any less focused on satisfying the U.S. market with exceptional vehicles.
