Last year proved to be an exceptional one for Mitsubishi in the United States. From nearly every angle, the automaker showed a growing presence and even reached a major milestone.
Mitsubishi arrived in the United States 34 years ago. Back then, the automaker offered three different models: the Starion, Tredia, and Cordia. It’s been quite a ride since then but late in 2015, in December, US vehicle sales reached five million.
Mitsubishi’s success in 2015 went a long way in helping to achieve that particular milestone. In 2015, Mitsubishi sales were up 22.8% from the year before. That registers as Mitsubishi’s most successful year since 2008. The Mitsubishi Outlander Sport and Mitsubishi CUVs in general are responsible for much of the recent sales success.
Will they keep it up? Don Swearingen, executive VP, Mitsubishi Motors North America, thinks so. He said, “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.”
We’re looking forward to a successful 2016 for Mitsubishi. Stop by Randall Mitsubishi today to learn more about Mitsubishi’s full 2016 lineup of vehicles!
