The History of Mitsubishi 

If you’re asking, “Does Nissan own Mitsubishi?” we have to go back to the very beginning.

Mitsubishi was founded in the late 1800s. After a ship-building division split in the early 1900s, Japan released its first mass-produced car: the Mitsubishi Model A. In the 1960s, the Mitsubishi Motor Sales Corporation was established. Then, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. became the sole shareholder of the Mitsubishi Motors Corporation in the 1970s. 

The history of Mitsubishi went in a different direction in the 1980s as Mitsubishi Motor Sales of America Inc. was established with the Mitsubishi Corporation as a joint capital investment. Not long after, Mitsubishi Motor Sales Corporation took over its operations, and in 2015, car production at Mitsubishi Motors North America was terminated. In 2016, MMC and Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. came together in a business alliance.
