Mitsubishi Numbers Up 30.5 Percent with Help from Outlander Sport Sales in October
Mitsubishi October sales were up a whopping 30.5% compared to last October, marking the brand’s best October sales since 2008 and its eighth consecutive month of year-over-year sales increases. A total of 6,199 units were sold.
The highlight performance of the month came from the Outlander Sport five-passenger compact crossover. As our best-selling vehicle here at Larry Jay Mitsubishi, we always expect the Outlander Sport to do well, but it surpassed all expectations last month by setting a new all-time October sales record and cinching its 13th consecutive month of year-over-year sales increases. With 2,468 units now in the hands of happy new owners, Outlander Sport sales in October were up 22.8% for the month and 24.8% year-to-date.
The Mitsubishi Lancer and Mirage were also notable for their great performances. The former’s sportiness and affordability earned it a 17.5% boost in sales while the latter’s fuel-efficiency and style helped it achieve its 12th consecutive month of sales of more than 1,000 units.
