After a divisional break in shipbuilding in the early twentieth century, Japan introduced the first mass-produced vehicle, the Mitsubishi Model A. The Mitsubishi Motor Sales Corporation was founded in the ’60s and was later owned entirely by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. beginning in the 1970s.

In the 1980s, Mitsubishi Motor Sales of America Inc. was founded as a joint financial venture between the Mitsubishi Corporation and Mitsubishi Motors. Production at Mitsubishi Motors North America ceased in 2015 when the company was acquired by Mitsubishi Motor Sales Corporation.
