Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) opened last September 1 its new flagship showroom, also known as “MI-Playground” (pronounced “My Playground”), near its headquarters in Tamachi, Tokyo.
Designed to deliver its global brand message “Drive your Ambition,” Mitsubishi Motors’ new showroom is committed to making vehicles that answer the needs of customers who want to expand their area of experience and take on new challenges. The new headquarter showroom serves as a field of interaction and inspiration that presents Mitsubishi brand’s identity, culture and technologies.
“MI-Playground” refers to an idea that everyone can experience and enjoy this platform, where “M” stands for Mitsubishi Motors, and “I” stands for intelligent, inspiration, ingenious and interaction. “MI-Playground” marks the company’s dedication to continuously enriching customer experience that feels personal, adventurous and progressive.
The facility is set to bring visitors an enjoyable experience to test the latest Mitsubishi models and feel closer to the brand. The overall design honors the brand history and presents a clean and modern design with the brand’s corporate colors, white and black, which are used as base colors and accentuated with wood pattern to provide a sense of warmth and familiarity.
