Mitsubishi Motors Philippines Corporation (MMPC) banners its September 2015 performance as it registers its highest monthly sales of 4,867 units. This is so far the most impressive monthly sales that MMPC was able to achieve since its history. It is also remarkable to note that this is 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% with 39,402 units sold while last month sales grew by double digit of 17.1% as compared to the same month last year. Joint reports from the Chamber of Automotive Manufacturers of the Philippines, Inc. (CAMPI) and Truck Manufacturers Association (TMA) showed that MMPC took 19.1% of the market share keeping its strong number two leadership in the industry.
For the month of September light commercial vehicles (LCV) sales improved by 12.8% 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. Meanwhile sales for passenger cars and buses grew for the first three quarters of the year. Passenger cars sales significantly grew by 32.4% 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 reaped a very well market acceptance since their introduction and continue to be a top of the mind choice for first time car buyers and even for those who are venturing to transportation business. Rosa buses also performed well with 16% sales growth.
MMPC is positive that with their extensive vehicle line-up 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% of the market share.
