Mitsubishi Delica Overview

The Mitsubishi Delica is classed as a MPV (Multi Purpose Vehicle) and is produced by the Japanese automobile manufacturers Mitsubishi Motors. This vehicle has been in production since 1968 up until the present day. This vehicle was originally taken from a small pick up truck bearing the same name. The Delica name is taken from the English term ‘Delivery Car’. This vehicle has been marketed under different names including L300 and Express, depending on the market. These vehicles have a good interior layout and can seat up o eight people. There are good off-road variants and some versions are really well equipped. They look distinct and are worth considering.

Mitsubishi Delica History

The first generation (1968-79) Delica was introduced as a pick up cab in 1968 and the passenger and cargo vehicles were introduced in 1969. The passenger van was discontinued in 1976. The second generation (1979-86) was made slightly larger and given a new design and there was a wide variety of vehicles, including the passenger vehicle. The third generation (1986-present) had a redesign and was the most aerodynamic version to date. It was rounder in design and the van version was still in production in some markets.

The fourth generation (1994-2007) was again made more aerodynamic and had real off-road capabilities with 4WD included. In most markets the cargo version was known as the L400 and the passenger version as the Space Gear. The fifth generation (2007-present) is known as the Delica D-5 and is designed on the GS platform. This is the current version on the market.
