Mitsubishi Motors Announces Production, Sales and Export Figures for November 2009

TOKYO, Dec 22, 2009 - (ACN Newswire) - Mitsubishi Motors Corporation today announced global production, as well as domestic sales and export figures for November 2009.

Production: global total and Japan
Total global production for November came in at 93,408 units, 0.5 percent up over the same month last year and the first increase in 16 months, since July 2008. Production volume in Japan at 51,339 units was 10.0 percent down, the thirteenth consecutive monthly decline and due mainly to a major drop in shipments to Europe over the same month last year. Passenger car output at 46,480 units was down 8.4 percent and commercial vehicle output at 4,859 units was down 22.8 percent.

Sales in Japan
Vehicle sales in Japan in November totaled 13,245 units, 1.5 percent up on the same month last year and the second year-on-year increase in three months. Sales of passenger cars at 9,361 units were 0.8 percent down while sales of commercial vehicles at 3,884 units were 7.7 percent up year on year. Registered vehicle sales volume at 4,631 units was 21.8 percent up on the same month last year, bolstered primarily by 113.9 percent and 44.7 percent increases respectively in year-on-year sales of Colt and Colt Plus models on back of tax reductions on eco cars and promotional measures. Sales of Outlander and Delica D5 models were also up year on year. Minicar sales volume at 8,614 units was 6.8 percent down despite 13.1 percent and 14.0 percent rises respectively in sales of eK Wagon and "i" models.

Production overseas
Overseas production volume totaled 42,069 units, 17.2 percent up over November last year and the second year-on-year increase in three months. By region, output in Asia at 34,229 units was 42.7 percent up helped by 324.3 percent and 168.0 percent increases respectively at China Motor Corp. in Taiwan and South East (Fujian) Motor in China on the back of strong sales growth. In North America output at 2,345 units was 28.5 percent down over November last year. In Europe, output at 2,703 units was 52.2 percent down.

Export shipments from Japan
Total exports from Japan of 30,636 units were 23.3 percent down on November 2008 and marked the thirteenth consecutive year-on-year monthly decrease. Exports to Asia at 2,842 units were flat up on the back of stronger sales in China and Malaysia. Export shipments to North America at 6,875 units rose by 50.7 percent over the same month last year helped by strong sales of the new 2010 model year Outlander in both the U.S. and Canada. Exports to Europe at 5,450 units were 60.9 percent down, again due mainly to very slow sales in Russia.
