Mitsubishi Motors North America announced the completion of the Mitsubishi Re-Model A project they embarked on with West Coast Customs earlier this year.
The vehicle will make its television debut on a special episode of Inside West Coast Customs, premiering Monday, November 6 at 10PM ET/PT on Velocity . The show will highlight the entire build, from conceptualization to the first drive.
As a testament to the brands 100th anniversary, Mitsubishi Motors partnered with West Coast Customs to recreate the 1917 Model A on the platform of the Outlander PHEV, Mitsubishi’s most technologically advanced vehicle. Staying true to the Model A’s aesthetic, the finished product embodies the original 1917 frame with modern day enhancements including Mitsubishi’s superior Super All-Wheel Control system, Plug-In charging capabilities, Forward Collision Mitigation and Smartphone Display Audio with smartphone capability. The Mitsubishi Re-Model A not only commemorates the past, but celebrates the technology in present day models and shines a light on the next 100 years.
“The team at West Coast Customs seamlessly blended our past, present and future together in the form of the Mitsubishi Re-Model A” said Francine Harsini, senior director, marketing, MMNA. “It’s been an invigorating and exciting project to be a part of and we are excited to share the finished product with everyone. Additionally, this unique build provided us the opportunity to use product integration to highlight Mitsubishi’s all-new Outlander PHEV which comes to market later this year.”
The Mitsubishi Re-Model A was built at the West Coast Customs facility in Burbank, CA and following the television debut on Inside West Coast Customs, will travel to the Los Angeles Auto Show where it will be on display in the Mitsubishi Motors booth and make its public debut.
