Mitsubishi Motors Philippines Corporation (MMPC) announced that it has reached another milestone with the roll-out of its 200,000th L300 production unit. MMPC’s iconic utility van has sold more than 190,000 units and is perceived to be the most trusted model in the country because of its dependable engine, durable quality and affordable price.
In a statement, MMPC president and CEO Mutsuhiro Oshikiri said that the 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,” Oshikiri said.
MMPC has been operating as an automotive manufacturer and distributor in the country for over 56 years. The company’s years of operation in the industry and its ability to surpass several economic challenges is a testament to MMPC’s strong and pliant characteristic.
For his part, Mitsubishi Motors Corporation’s Chief Executive Officer Takao Kato expressed their commitment to further grow and expand their business in the country.

We will work even harder to enhance MMPC plant’s competitiveness and quality, so that we can make L300 a trusted model in ASEAN,” Kato said.
