The Outlander led the pack with 1,465 sales (the PHEV making up 432 of those vehicles), while the RVR hit 1,103 units sold, while the Eclipse Cross had its best month ever with 752 units sold. These numbers not only provide evidence for the growing contingent of Mitsubishi lovers across Canada, but for the growing popularity of new-age vehicles like the Outlander PHEV. It’s been quite the year and month for Mitsubishi owners and lovers!
Why the Increase in Mitsubishi Sales?
So, why did Mitsubishi enjoy more and more success? It’s because Mitsubishi is never a brand content with stagnancy, always pushing forward and finding new ways to satiate drivers across Canada. The SUV lineup was bolstered by the introduction of the Eclipse Cross and Outlander PHEV for 2018, providing new options for Canadians as they look to future technologies in their vehicles. It’s been estimated that around 25% of Canadians who bought a plug-in hybrid chose the Outlander PHEV as their choice. No wonder, as it became the first vehicle of its type to break 5,000 vehicles sold in a calendar year. The Outlander PHEV sits atop as a unique option from Mitsubishi, and a continued draw for customers.
