Mitsubishi Motors Corporation Post-Earthquake Production Forecast

04-28-2011 02:21 PM CET | Industry, Real Estate & Construction

Press release from: Mitsubishi Australia

We would like to express our deepest condolences and sympathies to all those who have suffered and are suffering as a result of this extremely tragic earthquake and its aftermath. It is our sincere hope all those affected will be able to recover soon from this difficult situation.

Production Forecast for April
MMC has been producing irregularly, with repeated starts and stops of production at its Japanese plants since the occurrence of the disaster. However, with the parts procurement situation expected to improve, MMC has resumed continuous production from April 18. Therefore MMC forecasts a production volume for April 18 to the end of the April to be about 90 per cent of its original planned volume, and forecasts a production volume for the entire month to reach about 60 per cent of its original planned volume.

Post-April Production
While ascertaining the status of parts procurement, MMC will decide on its domestic production plans for the time after a string of national holidays that start at the end of April and take up the first week of May.

Production Outside of Japan
Although some of MMC’s models produced abroad are and have been limited by parts procurement, the effect on MMC’s production abroad is negligible and MMC forecasts normal and continuous operation for its plants outside of Japan.

Mitsubishi Motors Australia is part of the global Mitsubishi Motors organisation and is fully owned by Mitsubishi, one of the world's largest companies.

The company's history dates back to 1870, when Mitsubishi's Japanese founder, Yataro Iwasaki, started a shipping company with three steamships. The company grew from strength to strength and, in 1914, registered the Mitsubishi three-diamond trademark. This symbol embodies more than 130 years of tradition, and has earned the confidence and trust of customers all over the world.

Mitsubishi takes great pride from knowing that more than 11 million people from around the world have chosen to drive a Mitsubishi vehicle. There are Mitsubishi dealers in more than 200 sites across Australia. These professional and knowledgeable dealers help owners ensure their Mitsubishi car is always looked after by fully-trained Mitsubishi technicians, using genuine Mitsubishi parts that meet stringent global standards.

Mitsubishi works hard to develop award winning new car and automotive technology.

If you would like to know more about the iMiEV Electric Cars or a Mitsubishi commercial vehicle see the Mitsubishi website.
