Mitsubishi Motors Philippines Corporation (MMPC) celebrated a milestone as they rolled out the 200,000th L300 production unit at their assembly plant in Sta. Rosa, Laguna. With over 190,000 sales, the iconic utility van won over the hearts of the Filipinos families and business throughout the years because of its dependable engine, durable quality, and affordable price.
“This achievement is a reflection of the resiliency of MMPC. Despite the current challenges that we are facing due to the COVID19 pandemic, we are still geared to provide the market with quality vehicles and support Filipino livelihood through serving transportation and business needs. Also, aligned with the Philippines government’s effort to battle the spreading virus, MMPC has lent out several Mitsubishi L300 units to both local and national government for various outreach activities.”–says Mutsuhiro Oshikiri, president and CEO of MMPC.
Operating for over 56 years, the role of MMPC as an automotive manufacturer and distributor of the Mitsubishi brand allowed them to rise above the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. This is a testament to the company’s strong and pliant dedication in providing the most reliable, diesel-powered vehicles not only to the Filipino people but also to the ASEAN region.
Just as Takao Kato, Mitsubishi Motors Corporation’s Chief Executive Officer said, “We are committed to further grow and expand the business of Mitsubishi Motors in the Philippines. We are in the process of finalizing our plans to export L300 to other ASEAN countries, which makes us the only automotive manufacture in the Philippine to export vehicles. We will work even harder to enhance MMPC plant’s competitiveness and quality, so that we can make L300 a trusted model in ASEAN.”
