Annual Mitsubishi Sales Up 23%–Outlander Sport Continues to Lead

Annual Mitsubishi sales were up 22.8% over last year after a strong December performance. The automaker sold 7,887 in the last month of the year and a total of 95,342 vehicles over the course of 2015, marking the 22nd consecutive month of year-over-year sales increases—a streak that promises to go on in light of the continued success of Mitsubishi’s CUV lineup.

As always, the Outlander and Outlander Sport led the charge for Mitsubishi both at Heritage Mitsubishi and across the nation. The Outlander was up 76.6% over December 2014 and 45.8% over the year 2014, while the Outlander was up 21.8% and 19%, respectively, with annual sales nearly reaching a whopping 37,000 units.

That’s not to say the automaker’s other vehicles didn’t do well: the Lancer was up 7.3% for the year and the Mirage up 28.8% on sales of 21,515 units, making it the most successful model in the lineup after the Outlander Sport—a true testament to its exceptional value.

“2015 was a monumental year for Mitsubishi Motors in many ways: we reported sales increases every month over the prior year, our dealer network has strengthened and we successfully launched the new 2016 Outlander. Most importantly, we’re poised to repeat our success in 2016,” said Don Swearingen, executive vice president, MMNA.

As Mitsubishi is one of the most innovative automakers on the market, it should come as no surprise that the 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage is so unique. From its highly efficient performance to its impressive standard features, it’s a car that you need to have. Here is everything that you need to know about the 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage.

If you’re someone that lives in the city or doesn’t need a huge car, the Mirage is your dream car. With its uniquely small size, the Mirage is one of the most versatile options on the market due to its flexibility. While it’s a small car, it still features 47.0 cubic feet of cargo area so that you can still transport your luggage, gear, or friends.

In addition to its size, the Mirage is one of the most efficient non-hybrid cars on the market. Getting up to 43 MPG on the highway, there’s no question that the Mirage goes easy on driver’s pockets and the environment. Drivers also have the option to select a 5-speed manual transmission to have more control over their driving experience.

Mitsubishi Off-Road Concepts Head at Tokyo Auto Salon

The Detroit Auto Show is still going on, but even before it started, we had a peek at what Mitsubishi had to show off thanks to the Tokyo Auto Salon.

At the Salon, the automaker unveiled two pairs of Mitsubishi off-road concepts: Outdoor Gear concepts and Active Camper concepts, both based on the Outlander PHEV and the Delica D5 minivan.

The former were instantly notable for their distinguished pearl white matte paintjob with orange trim. Inside, this carried over as a black interior with orange trim and mesh fabric seats with grippy suede trim. The Outlander Outdoor Gear concept rode on 20-inch wheels with off-road tires and received a spoiler and bike rack on the roof.

The Active Camper Concepts featured 20-inch wheels and a matte silver paint with a black camo pattern that carried on inside. The Outlander received a new body kit, a roof box, adjustable suspension, and 1,500 watts of auxiliary power.

The Delica isn’t sold in the United States, but we hope to see some of these designs in action in Outlander models to come at Heritage Mitsubishi!
