Mitsubishi Motors Philippines Corporation (MMPC) reaches another milestone as it rolls out its 200,000th Mitsubishi L300 unit. The 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.
“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.
MMPC has been operating for over 56 years as an automotive manufacturer and distributor. 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.
“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 manufacturer 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.” – Takao Kato, Mitsubishi Motors Corporation’s Chief Executive Officer said.
Last year, the Mitsubishi L300 was given a major powertrain update. The new 4N14 CRDI and turbocharged diesel engine produces 99 hp and 200 Nm of torque. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a 5-speed manual transmission. As a result of this new powertrain, the L300 now has a higher payload capacity of 1,085 kg. This workhorse is currently on sale for P804,000.
