MITSUBISHI Motors Philippines Corp. (MMPC) registered banner sales in September with its highest monthly sales of 4,867 units.
This was so far the biggest monthly sales it achieved since its history. September was also the second consecutive month that MMPC was able to attain a record-breaking monthly sales following a feat of 4,770 vehicles sold in August.
Apart from the record-breaking sales in September, MMPC’s market performance continues to surge. Year-on-year sales showed a modest growth of 5.9 percent with 39,402 units sold, while last month sales grew by double digit of 17.1 percent as compared to the same month last year.
Joint reports from the Chamber of Automotive Manufacturers of the Philippines Inc. and Truck Manufacturers Association showed that MMPC took 19.1 percent of the market share keeping its strong number two leadership in the industry.
For the month of September light commercial vehicles sales improved by 12.8 percent with 3,122 units sold. Locally manufactured models such as the Mitsubishi Adventure and L300 FB remain to be significant choices among car buyers who are looking for affordable vehicles that are also versatile.
Sales of passenger cars and buses grew for the first three quarters of the year. Passenger-car sales significantly grew by 32.4 percent with total sales 13,002 units. This highly notable sales surge is attributed to the strong sales of the Mirage and Mirage G4.
These models were heavily accepted by the market since their introduction and continue to be top-of-the-mind choices for first-time car buyers and even for those who are venturing to transportation business. Rosa buses also performed well with a 16-percent sales growth.
MMPC is positive that with their extensive vehicle lineup and enticing promotions, sales will still accelerate for the remaining months of the year. MMPC is aggressively working to reach its target of selling 62,000 units for 2015 and capturing 20 percent of the market share.
