CYPRESS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul 30, 2018--Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. (MMNA) today announced plans to increase its U.S. field operations from two zone offices to four, by adding new regional offices headquartered in Cypress, California and Orlando, Florida. Coming off the launch of two all-new vehicles, the Outlander PHEV and the Eclipse Cross, Mitsubishi Motors is continuing to demonstrate its commitment to the U.S. market, which will largely focus on energizing and supporting its national dealer base.

“Being part of the world’s largest automotive alliance, Mitsubishi is poised to grow alongside our Nissan and Renault partners, and the upcoming field operations expansion is the next step in the brand’s evolution,” said Fred Diaz, president and chief executive officer, MMNA. “Our dealers are at the core of our road to success, and we’re dedicated to staying in tune with them and providing the level of support they need.”

The field operations expansion announcement marks the first time since 2008 that MMNA has increased its regional network and comes at a pivotal moment as the brand continues to ride the momentum of its fifth consecutive year of annual sales growth. With about 360 dealers nationwide, MMNA is making a concerted effort to engage its Dealer Advisory Board now more than ever to ensure dealers are provided with more resources, access and direct contact.

MMNA’s current field operations structure includes two regional offices in Swedesboro, New Jersey and Irving, Texas.
