MITSUBISHI MOTORS PASSENGER CAR SALES JUMP 35 PERCENT IN SEPTEMBER DESPITE MARKET CHALLENGES

Mitsubishi Motors in the UK has recorded its best September since 2004 with 3,233 passenger car sales, a 35 percent increase compared to September 2017 despite challenging market conditions.

The consistent popularity of the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is a significant contributor to this sales success, with 1,325 units sold in September 2018, a jump of 9% compared to the same month last year, and a total of 5,731 units year-to-date.

The addition of the all-new Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross to the range in January also played an important role in its success, with 1,067 sales in September and 4,492 units year-to-date.

Rob Lindley, Managing Director, Mitsubishi Motors in the UK said: “We are delighted with such a strong performance in September across our whole range of vehicles. The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV continues to be popular with buyers, while the all-new Eclipse Cross and Shogun Sport models are helping the brand win over new customers, so overall we remain on target to achieve our sales ambitions, despite some of the challenges in the car market.”
