Mitsubishi Exports Its 5-Millionth Vehicle From Thailand

Mitsubishi Motors has exported over five million vehicles from its Thailand manufacturing plant in Laem Chabang, Chonburi Province.

The Japanese carmaker’s largest production base outside of Japan started production in 1964. In 1988, Mitsubishi became the first automotive manufacturer to start exporting from Thailand. Today, Mitsubishi Motors (Thailand) Co., Ltd. (MMTh) has grown to export vehicles to more than 120 countries around the world. Out of 340,000 vehicles produced at MMTh, around 90 percent—306,000—are for export.

“Thailand is one of our most important bases, and its importance will continue to increase in the future,” said Takao Kato, president and chief executive officer, Mitsubishi Motors. “Reaching an export volume of five million vehicles is a step to the continuous growth and expansion of production volume in Thailand. We will continue to focus on Thailand as the main region that drives our activities in ASEAN countries, which are the foundation of our business. At the same time, we will contribute to the development of the automobile industry in Thailand.”

Aside from Japan and Thailand, Mitsubishi has a global footprint in terms of production with assembly operations in Indonesia, China, Philippines, Vietnam, and Russia.

Of late, Mitsubishi has concentrated on SUVs, pickup trucks, and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs). As part of their three-year business plan announced in 2020, the carmaker has confirmed the arrival of vehicles such the all-new Triton/Strada.
