The founder of such an empire was Yataro Iwasaki and he was the one who guided the footsteps of one of the industrial conglomerates more important in the world. The first car they built was the Mitsubishi Model and he only made the traditional way in 22 units. This model had 7 seats and was based on the Fiat tipo 3. It was from there when they started their activity in this sector and despite the fact that they have suffered various crises, have managed to overcome them.
