Founded in 1917, Mitsubishi is an automotive manufacturer headquartered in Japan. It forms part of the Renault-Nissan Alliance and is majority owned by Nissan. Mitsubishi is currently among the top 10 biggest Japanese automakers and among the top 20 worldwide. Chrysler bought a 15 percent share in Mitsubishi in the 1970s, as part of Mitsubishi’s plan to increase exports. By 1980, it finally achieved an annual production of one million cars. During the 1990s, the sale of light trucks and SUV skyrocketed in the U.S. allowing Mitsubishi to increase its budget for manufacturing sport utility vehicles.
Some of the popular Mitsubishi models include the Cordia, Eclipse, and Montero. Mitsubishi is also actively involved in motorsport, and started with street races in the 1960s. The brand’s competition efforts shifted to off-road racing in the 1970s, with much success in the World Rally Championship.
