Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV Goes For Sales Record In Japan
Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is maintaining a strong pace of sales in Japan since the new 2016 model year was launched.
With 1,145 sales last month, and 113% growth year-over-year, the Outlander PHEV seems to really enjoy the fall – unlike its all-electric colleague Nissan LEAF which has been patiently awaiting the 30 kWh versions arrival in December.
9,664 Outlander PHEV have been sold so far this year, and guarantee Mitsubishi a new annual sales record as just 9,608 were sold in 2013 and 10,064 in 2014.
November and December could add more than 2,000 and raise the bar by about 20% over 2014.
In total, more than 29,300 Outlander PHEV have been sold to date in Japan.
Meanwhile, zero Outlander PHEV have been sold in the U.S. due to an oft-delayed launch. Mitsubishi says Outlander PHEV will finally go on sale in the U.S. next year in late April/May.
