Record December powers Mitsubishi to best year ever


Mitsubishi Motor Sales of Canada Inc. (MMSCAN) finished 2011 strongly as a healthy December pushed the yearly total to 20,511 units, breaking the 20,000 mark and achieving record annual sales.

MMSCAN sold 2,074 vehicles in December, up 18.6 per cent over the same month in 2010.

Model standouts were the Outlander and Lancer models, both of which enjoyed their best month of the year (641 and 788, respectively).

Yearly total sales for 2011 was up 5.2 per cent.

While officially a small contribution on paper, the i-MiEV hit dealerships last month and helped garner a lot of press for Mitsubishi.
