Mitsubishi is breaking all sorts of records, including the Five Million Vehicle Sales Milestone. First introduced in 1982, Mitsubishi has been steadily becoming one of the most recognizable brands in the industry. Beginning with the iconic Tredia, Cordia, and Starion, Mitsubishi now has a range of high-performance, off-road, and luxury models to offer.
According to Mitsubishi, the brand reached the five million mark in the US on December 26. This represented the 21st consecutive month of sales increases, making it up over 43 percent by the time 2015 ended. With over 100 improvements on models like the Outlander and the introduction of the fuel-efficient Outlander Sport CUV, it’s no wonder sales were through the roof.
“This is a great milestone for Mitsubishi Motors because it means that five million customers have entrusted the brand over the past 30-plus years, and we hope many more will give us that same opportunity in the future,” said Don Swearingen, executive vice president, MMNA. “Our current sales momentum combined with a technologically innovative product pipeline primes Mitsubishi for great success in the U.S. for many years to come.”
The most popular models of all time include the 3000GT, Eclipse, Montero, Galant, and the recently retired Lancer Evolution. Currently, the model lineup includes the i-MIEV, Mirage, Lancer, Outlander, and Outlander Sport. We can’t wait to see Mitsubishi reach the 10 million mark in the future.
