2015 was the best year for Mitsubishi sales since 2008 and it looks like that momentum will continue in 2016!
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.”

With 2015 just starting, sometimes it can be nice to reflect on 2014 and everything that happened. This is especially true if you experienced an important milestone in 2014. This concept is certainly true for Mitsubishi Motors right now, which recently announced its 2014 sales numbers. It turns out that there was a 24.8% increase for 2013 when compared year over year to 2013!
“December marked the 20th consecutive month of year-over-year sales increases and helped us close out the year with an increase of nearly 25 percent over the previous year. Our core models lead the way with Outlander Sport having its best-ever sales year since its introduction, Mirage selling well beyond expectations and Outlander coming in strong up over 6 percent for the year,” said Don Swearington, executive vice president of Mitsubishi Motor North America, Inc.

Swearington also said that 2015 will bring releases of more versions of the Outlander, which will mark the start of a series of launches for the brand. December’s landmark sales month included a total of 6,656 units.
