It wasn't until 1960 that Mitsubishi launched the passenger car production process again.
The first car was the Mitsubishi 500, a subcompact, two-door, two-row, rear engine, rear wheel drive car.
It was presented in Japan at the Tokyo International Automobile Fair in the fall of 1959 (held from October 24 to November 4).
There were prerequisites for this.
The automotive division was revived in the early 50s.
Since 1948, Nissan and Datsun cars have been assembled from car kits at their factories.
In 1951, having concluded an agreement with the Americans, they produced (assembled from car kits) the legendary Willys (flesh until 1998, for a second), and also for a very short time such a model as Kaiser-FraserHenry J (produced until 1954).
So there were production facilities, and engineering personnel, and experience in the practical assembly of cars.
The constant problems of the company at the end of the last century led the Japanese automaker to gradually abandon the development of new models, and the production of those that had been produced for several decades ceased.
Legendary cars were leaving the market, and there was no replacement for them.
Only the Mitsubishi Mirage remained in service, and a group of crossovers included in two lines - the Mitsubishi Outlander (here we include the Mitsubishi ASX) and the Mitsubishi Pajero, plus the Mitsubishi L200 pickup.
The last breath was the development and start of production of the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross crossover.
Figuratively speaking, “the last of the Mohicans, ” and then the world lost another legendary, original automaker who tried to produce cars with sports DNA and SUVs that proved their professional suitability more than once.
In the end, only a few iconic models with endless restyling remained.
Although the parent company made several attempts to save the situation and carried out additional capitalization.
In 2016, due to the systemic crisis, the fuel efficiency scandal, Mitsubishi Motors Corporation found itself in a very difficult position.
Therefore, part of the company was acquired by another Japanese automaker, Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. (And it was it who provoked this scandal in order to finish off and buy out a competitor, given the long-standing business relationship, because Mitsubishi assembled Nissan models back in the 50s of the last century).
So Mitsubishi Motors Corporation lost its independence and authenticity, becoming part of the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi automotive alliance.
In the future, it is planned to use the developments of Renault and Nissan in the process of creating new models.
That is, of course, this is a nightmare, but, for example, Mitsubishi Outlander Sport can become just some kind of Renault Duster replica, as happened with Nissan Terrano.
