Mitsubishi calls July sales ‘hot’


Mitsubishi Canada says it was one of winners last month, posting a 4.4 per cent jump year-over-year and a 5.1 per cent increase over June’s tally.

The automaker said of particular note was the SUV segment where July sales checked in 52 per cent ahead of the same month last year bringing Mitsubishi’s YTD SUV sales to 7,654 units or 55.7 per cent ahead of 2010.

Strong RVR (451 units) and Outlander sales (522 units) fueled the gain and are keeping MMSCAN on the right track with a best calendar year to date.
