Mitsubishi Reports Stellar August Sales Results

Earlier this month, Mitsubishi Motors North America (MMNA) announced that the company had sold 8,416 vehicles in the United States during the month of August. This performance led to a sales increase of 3 percent over August 2017 results, and marked the company's best August sales month in a decade. So far in 2018, the company has sold 85,693 vehicles -- a gain of 21 percent over the same time period in 2017.

The Outlander Sport continued to be popular with American car shoppers, as 2,980 models sold resulted in a 3 percent jump over August 2017's performance. For the year, this nimble SUV has seen 28,335 models sold to American customers, far out-performing 2017 sales to date.

Unlike other automakers who have seen sedan sales plummet recently, Mitsubishi's success runs across the full lineup. The Mirage and Mirage G4 combined for 2,048 vehicles sold in August, a healthy 28 percent jump over August 2017 sales for the fuel-efficient hatchback and sedan. Again, running counter to industry trends, the two vehicles are posting an increase when we compare 2018 and 2017 year-to-date sales.
