Company Profile

Mitsubishi Motors Australia Ltd. (MMAL) enables people and businesses to drive their ambition through the technology, design and product advantages in our range of cars, SUVs and utes. With a network of around 200 dealers and service centres across Australia, you are never far from a Mitsubishi Dealer.

We are known for our superior vehicle engineering. In 2016 we introduced the latest generation of our 4WD SuperSelect technology, which provides optimum traction and handling characteristics on all driving surfaces.

The Outlander PHEV, awarded 2019’s Green SUV of the Year at the LA Auto Show, is Australia’s leading Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV). Mitsubishi vehicles consistently achieve ANCAP's highest safety rating, and in 2018 the Pajero Sport GLX, Mirage, Triton and Outlander PHEV performed best in their classes in the Australian motor associations' Vehicle Running Costs Study.

Mitsubishi Motors Australia is part of Mitsubishi Motors Corporation, based in Tokyo, Japan. The company is a leader in plug-in hybrid electric vehicle technology. We launched i-MiEV – the first mass-produced electric vehicle – in 2009, which was followed by the Outlander PHEV in 2013 – the plug-in hybrid market leader in Japan and Europe.

Mitsubishi has 32,000 employees and a global footprint with 33 development and production facilities in 33 countries. The global sales volume in fiscal year 2019 was 1,127,000 units, and the net sales of Mitsubishi Motors for fiscal year 2019 was 2.27 trillion yen.

Sustainability

Sustainability and Social Impact

Mitsubishi Motors Australia community programs combine our charitable giving with our SUV and 4x4 vehicles to make a difference to the communities in which we operate.

We support projects that are focused on helping communities through the use of vehicles across the areas of community development and disaster relief. In this way, we make meaningful change with a lasting impact.

Community Fleet

The Challenge

Logistics in the immediate aftermath of a disaster is critical to assist in the assessment of damage and the effectiveness of rescue, relief and recovery efforts. Though governments and aid agencies can often move quickly to mobilise people, it is more difficult to gain sufficient, fit-for-purpose vehicles at pace.

Our Solution

Our Community Fleet program allows these agencies to request the use of our vehicles for the purpose of community development and disaster relief. These short-term leases are offered at no cost and comprehensively insured to the receiving organisation.

To make this happen, we mobilise our staff volunteers and dealer network – from our field technicians to our supply chain managers – to bring to bear free, safe and vital vehicles to support disaster relief and humanitarian aid efforts.

Deployments include:

  • 2018 Queensland floods
  • 2019-2020 Australian bushfires
  • 2020 COVID programmes logistical support
  • Ongoing national partnership with Disaster Relief Australia
