The Automotive Group was established in 1948 when the Group introduced Chrysler vehicles to the Kuwaiti market. In 1972, the Group expanded its presence in Kuwait by being the first to introduce Mitsubishi to the Kuwaiti market as well as the Middle East.
In 2006, Al Mulla Group expanded even further by forming a joint venture with Behbehani Motors for the distribution of all Chrysler International brands: Chrysler, Dodge, and Jeep in Kuwait. The joint venture, known as Al Mulla & Behbehani Motor Company, grew even more in 2010 with the acquisition of exclusive distribution rights for the Fiat and Alfa Romeo brands. In 2014, Al Mulla Group struck a deal with Honda Motor Company to be the sole distributor of its luxury brand: ACURA.
The journey of the Automotive Group’s expansion culminated in 2018 when Al Mulla Group was selected by Daimler AG as the sole authorized distributor of Mercedes-Benz passenger cars and commercial vehicles in Kuwait.
Today, the Automotive Group has presence in Kuwait, Iraq, Egypt and the UAE, with a workforce of over 2,500 employees working in numerous divisions and facilities, including new and used car showrooms, spare parts outlets, and service centers.
