Exporting vehicles to more than 120 countries throughout the world, MMTh has exported 4.4 million out of the six million units abroad. The milestone of six millionth was a TRITON one-ton pickup truck.
“Thailand is an important hub for us, and MMTh has become our largest export base in the ASEAN region with the support from the Royal Thai Government,” said Takao Kato, chief executive officer of MMC. “MMTh produces popular TRITON, MIRAGE, and so on, and we have started production of OUTLANDER PHEV, a premium plug-in hybrid electric SUV with high performance but eco-friendly vehicle that attracts global attention, in the end of 2020. We are willing to offer even more attractive products to our customers.”
