CYPRESS, Calif. – Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. (MMNA), the fastest-growing Asian brand in the U.S. for the second consecutive year*, today welcomed the all-new Rosenberg Mitsubishi in Rosenberg, Texas to its growing North American dealer network.
Rosenberg Mitsubishi, located an hour outside of the greater Houston metropolitan area, joins the network as part of MMNA's ongoing expansion of its dealer network into untapped markets where opportunities exist to introduce the brand to a new group of consumers. The dealership is the second Mitsubishi franchise for Dealer Principal James Lorca. Lorca also operates Fort Worth Mitsubishi in Fort Worth, Texas, which is a top 10 dealership for MMNA based on annual sales volume. Lorca and his team are excited to bring their passion for the Mitsubishi Motors brand and sales expertise to their new store in Rosenberg, Texas.
"Rosenberg Mitsubishi is officially open for business, and we couldn't be more eager to help re-introduce the brand to a new generation of customers in southeast Texas," said James Lorca, dealer principal, Rosenberg Mitsubishi. "We take great pride in offering our customers the finest selection of new Mitsubishi vehicles, and we look forward to introducing the brand to a new group of Mitsubishi customers."
MMNA is currently in the process of finalizing the relocation of its U.S. headquarters from Cypress, California to Franklin, Tennessee, which will be completed by the end of 2019. The relocation is part of an ongoing effort to reinvent every aspect of the Mitsubishi Motors brand and business in the U.S., from corporate leadership to dealer partners to every touchpoint in a customer's relationship with their vehicle.
Over the past 18 months, MMNA added more than 40 new dealer partners while also expanding its national field operations network from two regions to four, adding new offices in Florida and California to reinforce sales support for dealers. The Florida and California teams joined already established operations based in New Jersey and Texas.

"As Mitsubishi Motors adds new dealer partners in critical markets throughout the central region, we lay the foundation to ensure growth and success for the brand."
