Mitsubishi celebrates 100 Years of Automobile Innovation


100 years Expo to wow the public with one of a kind motor show  

Mitsubishi is celebrating its centennial year of automobile manufacturing this year. The first car ever to be adorned with the three-diamond emblem was the Mitsubishi Model A developed by Mitsubishi Shipbuilding Company (one of predecessor companies of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries) in 1917. History of Mitsubishi automobile began with the 22-car production of Japan’s very first series-produced vehicle.  Then from the end of the World War II to the early 1970s, Mitsubishi automobiles ranging from commercial vehicles to unique passenger cars were launched which paved the way for the establishment of Mitsubishi Motors Corporation which has spawned from Mitsubishi Heavy Industries.

From 1970s up to the end of the 20th century, Mitsubishi automobiles provided solutions to the needs for conserving energy and resources.  At the same time Mitsubishi automobiles have enhanced driving pleasure of the drivers with high performance vehicles like class-leading sport utility vehicles.  Today, Mitsubishi automobiles are as prepared as ever to take on the new challenges and demands of owners worldwide.

MMPC celebrates with 100 years anniversary Expo

In celebration of Mitsubishi’s 100 years anniversary, Mitsubishi Motors Philippines Corp. (MMPC) will be holding a grand expo from June 8 to 11, 2017 at the World Trade Center, Pasay City. Dubbed as the Mitsubishi 100 Years Anniversary Expo this motor show promises to excite the public as it brings a one of a kind and truly memorable experience not only to Mitsubishi fans but to any car enthusiasts. The Mitsubishi 100 Years Anniversary Expo is open to public from 12 noon to 9pm on June 8 and from 10am to 9pm on June 9 to 11 and admission is free!

A century of automobile innovation will be showcased at the expo with the display of the iconic cars, rally cars and MMPC’s current vehicle line-up. During this event MMPC will give each expo visitors a glimpse of the rich history of Mitsubishi and a chance to see actual vehicles that were on display at the Mitsubishi Auto Gallery located in Okazaki, Japan. MMPC will bring in the 1937 Race (Circuit Car), 1985 Paris-Dakar Rally winner Pajero #189, WRC Lancer 2005 and the Outlander PHEV which won the 2015 Baja Rally.

This will definitely be the perfect venue for those who are also planning to purchase a brand new Mitsubishi vehicle. A display of MMPC’s current vehicle line-up including the Fuso trucks and bus line-up will also be available during this four-day expo.   Customers may test drive the new Montero Sport, Strada, Pajero and Mirage.  MMPC is also pleased to include in the roster of available test units the pure electric vehicle – iMiEV and the Outlander Plug-In Hybrid Vehicle (PHEV).  Those who missed the series of Montero Sport Head to Head test drive last year will have a chance to once again test and compare the Montero Sport with the competition to prove for themselves the class leading features of the Montero Sport. Test Drive activity is from 10am to 6pm only.

Guaranteed for the whole family to enjoy.
