August 4, 2020, Kuala Lumpur – Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia Sdn Bhd, the official distributor of Mitsubishi Motors vehicles in Malaysia, has sold 4,008 units of vehicles from January to July which resulted in an increase of its market share (according to the total industry volume) to 1.7 percent from 1.4 percent during the same period last year.
At the same time, the Mitsubishi Triton recorded a 22.2 percent market share. It grew from 16.9 percent from the same corresponding period of 2019. The triton has now become the number one position in the double-cab pick-up truck segment in Melaka, Penang and Kedah.
“Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia is pleased to see positive sales take off after being under pressure by the unprecedented Covid-19 pandemic. This is driven largely by the 100 percent sales tax exemption from the government which applies to both our locally assembled SUVs the ASX Compact SUV and the Outlander seven-seater SUV.
“The good sales also reveal brand and customers’ loyalty in these very tough times,” said its chief executive officer Tomoyuki Shinnishi in a statement.
Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia has recently announced that the company will be introducing the new Mitsubishi Xpander in Malaysia later this year.
“We are very excited for a thrilling year ahead with the introduction of the Mitsubishi Xpander. The seven-seater crossover will provide us with a solid base to maintain strong sales momentum until the end of the year. The demand and success of the new Mitsubishi Xpander in our neighbouring ASEAN countries reflects on how well-suited this car is to meet the needs of customers and we’re confident that this impressive Xpander will capture the heart of Malaysians,” Shinnishi said.
The company will also be upgrading some selected numbers of showrooms to improve and maintain its number one position in providing excellence after sales customer service.
