News and Notes

  • MMNA announced details of its forward-looking North American business plan, dubbed "Mitsubishi Motors Momentum 2030", in May. Outlining business and product plans through fiscal-year 2030, the plan was first revealed to the company's dealer partners in a national dealer meeting in Nashville, Tenn., and was met with considerable enthusiasm and excitement. Plan highlights include:
  • Electrification with a blend of powertrains – hybrid, plug-in hybrid, battery electric
  • One new or completely refreshed vehicle to debut each year between fiscal 2026 and fiscal 2030; new vehicles to be introduced across more segments, nearly doubling the number of product offerings
  • Dealer network expansion to cover more sales markets across the U.S.; new-design dealerships to be introduced, reducing the cost of entry for dealer partners and heralding a new way to shop for and buy new cars
  • Technology and innovation will be the hallmark of MMNA's sales, marketing, and customer satisfaction processes
  • The June reopening of the Port of Baltimore, following the partial collapse of the Francis Scott Key bridge, improved vehicle delivery logistics for MMNA and its dealer partners. MMNA resumed operations at the Port of Baltimore on May 25.
  • Industry-wide challenges associated with the CDK cyberattack impacted approximately one-third of MMNA's dealer partners across the U.S.
  • During the quarter, MMNA announced the promotion of Katherine Knight to the newly created role of Senior Vice President, Chief Legal and Administrative Officer. This new position further aligns key strategic functions within MMNA under Katherine's leadership. She continues to report to Mark Chaffin, President and Chief Executive Officer.
