Mitsubishi Motors Australia Tonsley Park Closure 2008
Channel 9 Adelaide news report on the closure of the Mitsubishi Motors
Australia Tonsley Park manufacturing plant in February 2008.
Founded in 1964 by Chrysler Australia Ltd, Tonsley Park was best known for
producing such cars as the Valiant, Galant and Sigma before being sold to
Mitsubishi Motors Corporation in 1980, along with the Lonsdale Engine
Manufacturing Complex, to form Mitsubishi Motors Australia Ltd. Over the
next 28 years Mitsubishi would produce the Mitsubishi Colt, Sigma, Magna,
Verada and 380 on the Tonsley Park assembly lines.
After a nervous wait that lasted for several years, Mitsubishi Motors
Australia announced the imminent closure of the Tonsley Park Assembly Plant
on February 5th 2008. Tonsley Park was officially shut down at the end of
operations on March 31st 2008, ceasing production of the Mitsubishi 380
sedan and ending 44 years of vehicle manufacturing at Tonsley Park.
The plants at both Lonsdale and Tonsley Park, along with the cars they
produced, are credited with a number of major contributions to the
Australian automotive industry including, but not limited to:
- First Wide-Body Medium/Large Sedan
- First Australian-made car with an Independent (Multi-Link) Rear
- First Australian-made car for export to the USA
- First Australian-made car to feature ABS with EBD
- First Australian-made car to feature a Tiptronic 4-speed Transmission
- First Australian-made car to feature a 5-speed Automatic Transmission
- First Australian-made All-Wheel-Drive car
Mitsubishi Motors Australia Ltd continues to operate solely as an importer
of vehicles and continues to provide service and support for all Mitsubishi
cars through its nationwide dealer network. As of October 2010, Mitsubishi
Motors Australia Ltd continues to operate its corporate head offices and
spare parts centres from the South Road, Tonsley Park site.
