The company reported an operating profit of 20.6 billion yen on revenues up 2.8% at 440.9 billion yen for the first quarter of fiscal 2017, representing an operating margin of 4.7%. Net income reached 23.0 billion yen, reversing prior year losses of 129.7 billion yen.

Global sales reached 241,000 units, up 9.0% versus same period of the previous year. The sales increase reflected the resumption of kei car sales in Japan, which were suspended in the prior-year quarter after the fuel economy issue, as well as strong growth in China following the launch of locally-produced Outlander SUVs. Sales also increased in the ASEAN region, led by demand for SUVs and pick-up trucks.

Osamu Masuko, Chief Executive Officer, said: "Fiscal year 2017 is off to a solid start. We are seeing the benefits of increased operational rigor and efficiency, along with encouraging sales in key markets.

"Our V-shaped recovery is continuing, paving the way for sustainable growth. Synergies from the Nissan Alliance are also on track, making a further contribution to the company's overall performance."

Based on the company's first quarter results, MMC has reaffirmed the full year financial forecast for fiscal 2017, which was submitted to the Tokyo Stock Exchange this May.

Die Mitsubishi Motors Corporation ist der älteste Automobil-Serienhersteller Japans. Bereits 1917 fertigte das Unternehmen das serienfähige Modell A in Kobe, es wurde von einem 2,8-Liter-Vierzylinder mit 35 PS angetrieben. 1921 begann die Produktion von Leichtlastwagen, 1934 entstand der erste Personenwagen mit Allradantrieb und Dieselmotor, der PX 33. Mit dem Geländewagen Pajero, dessen Wettbewerbsversion zwölf Mal die Rallye Paris Dakar gewann, hat Mitsubishi Geschichte geschrieben. Auch im On-Road-Rallyesport konnte die Marke punkten und gehört mit fünf Titeln als Rallye-Weltmeister zu den erfolgreichsten Autoherstellern dieses Wettbewerbs. Heute ist das Ziel nachhaltiger Mobilität in die Unternehmensstatuten eingebettet. Mit dem Elektrofahrzeug Mitsubishi Electric Vehicle gelang der Schritt in die E-Mobility, der Plug-in Hybrid Outlander ist das erste SUV Plug-in Hybrid mit Allradantrieb.

Die Deutschlandzentrale der MMD Automobile GmbH (MMDA), dem deutschen Importeur von Mitsubishi Fahrzeugen ist in Rüsselsheim angesiedelt. Das Unternehmen befindet sich in unmittelbarer Nähe des Finanzierungspartners, der MCE-Bank mit den Kfz-Werkstatträumen im nur wenige Kilometer entfernten Flörsheim. Ebenfalls in unmittelbarer Nähe, in Trebur, ist das europäische Entwicklungs- und Designzentrum von MMC.

Nicht weit vom jetzigen Standort begann im Jahre 1977 in Rüsselsheim die Auslieferung der ersten Fahrzeuge mit den drei Diamanten im Kühlergrill. In der mittlerweile 40-jährigen Firmengeschichte von Mitsubishi Motors in Deutschland wurden insgesamt mehr als 1,7 Millionen Fahrzeuge verkauft. Heute sind rund 500.000 zugelassene Mitsubishi Modelle auf deutschen Straßen unterwegs. Die Mitsubishi Modelle werden in Deutschland von Händlern an mehr als 600 Vertriebs- und Servicestandorten vertrieben.

Seit Anfang 2014 gehört die MMD Automobile GmbH mehrheitlich zur Emil Frey Gruppe Deutschland.
