New Mitsubishi Outlander Japan's Best Selling SUV

19,000 sales since launch in mid-October

Customer confidence demonstrated

European launch to follow

Since its home market launch in October 2005, the all-new Mitsubishi Outlander has amassed more sales than any other SUV in Japan, placing it not only ahead of its own sales targets but also well ahead of the competition.

Accumulated sales of 18,921 put new Outlander at the top of the 6-month October-March SUV sales chart, ahead of the Toyota Harrier* and Toyota RAV4; Outlander was also top seller in November, December and February. Outlander’s closest rivals (Toyota RAV4 and Nissan X-Trail) each registered over 4,000 fewer sales than Outlander**, which outsells the Honda CR-V by more than three-to-one***. With an original sales target of 2,000 per month, new Outlander’s to-date sales figure represents an achievement rate of almost 160%.

This is far more interesting and relevant than the Eclipse, IMO, which is struggling in a dying segment. The Outlander seems class-leading with its aluminum roof, six-speed automatic, Bluetooth, keyless ignition, and ESP.

I was blown away by the shots and information that was posted a few months ago. Mitsubishi has done its homework. Now it just has to advertise the hell of the car and the rest of the lineup.

Could Mitsubishi be the next Asian comeback kid, after Nissan?

I don't think so. Not as of now, at least. The Galant is a complete dud, along with the rest of thier vehicles. Outlander may have a chance at being something relevant......but Endeavor [a nice car that I actually like], Lancer, Eclipse, Galant, are all so irrelevant to the market. Evo is the only thing saving thier crediblity, and it's barely adding anything.

The next Lancer is probably going to be good...

Mitsubishi is like a Japanese Ford. Lowest common denominator.

We've already seen the design language that'll debut with the next-generation Lancer (think Concept X). If the translation to production is successful enough, it'll really help Mitsu's bottom line.

Signs of cost-cutting really aren't as apparent as one would expect with models like the new Outlander.
