About MMNA



Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. (MMNA) Manufacturing Division began as Diamond-Star Motors in a 50/50 joint venture between Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC), Japan, and Chrysler Corporation (now DaimlerChrysler), in the fall of 1985. The first cars rolled off the assembly line in 1988. In 1991, MMC purchased Chryslers 50 percent share and the plant became a wholly-owned American subsidiary of MMC.

To better identify Mitsubishi Motors' presence in the U.S. marketplace, the plant changed the name to Mitsubishi Motor Manufacturing of America, Inc. (MMMA) on July 1, 1995. Later that year in October, MMMA celebrated production of its one-millionth vehicle -- which was the first Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder convertible -- and the tenth anniversary of incorporation.

In January, 2001, all North American operations of Mitsubishi Motors were consolidated into Mitsubishi Motors North America (MMNA). Production of the two-millionth vehicle was celebrated that same year in February. The three-millionth vehicle celebration was in October of 2009.

The Manufacturing Division in Normal, IL represents Mitsubishi Motors' only passenger car assembly plant in North America. 2013 marks the 25th Anniversary of producing vehicles in the United States for MMNA, Manufacturing Division.
