Founded as a shipping firm in Tokyo in 1870, the name Mitsubishi is often translated as 'three diamonds.' Almost immediately, the company began diversifying into related fields and Mitsubishi Motors was established in 1970 although its origins are thought to go back as early as 1917. The first car built by the now corporate giant was the Mitsubishi Model A. The Model A was completely hand-built and because of the high cost of production, only 22 were made. Today, Mitsubishi is the sixth-largest Japanese automobile manufacturer and it produces and distributes cars worldwide.
Popular South African Models
One of the most popular Mitsubishi models in South Africa is the Triton and that may be because the automobile has been produced by Mercedes-Benz South Africa since 2008. If a bakkie is not what you are looking for, there are plenty of other Mitsubishi models from which to choose.
The Lancer has been around since 1973 and continues to be a popular choice for those who want a small yet powerful car. Engine sizes vary and can range from 1.5-litre to a 2.0-litre engine in either a sedan or hatchback design. Transmissions for the Lancer can range from a 5-speed manual to a 6-speed automatic and Mistubishis are known for their outstanding fuel economy. The body of many newer model Lancers has been redesigned to give it more of a family car look.
The Outlander is a crossover SUV that combines a roomy interior with plenty of power. Engine and transmission sizes vary by model year and the Outlander is still in production today. A hybrid model of Outlander is also available. Most Outlanders have a top speed of around 120 kilometres per hour and get very good fuel mileage.
