Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia (MMM) today announced that from January to July 2020, they’ve sold over 4,008 vehicles. This represents a 1.7% market share, up from 1.4% from the same period (January to July) last year.
The Triton continues to carry the sales torch for Mitsubishi Malaysia, with an increased market share of 22.2%; up from 16.9% in the same period. The sales boost also means that the Triton is now the No.1 double-cab pick-up truck in Malacca, Penang and Kedah.
“Mitsubishi 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% sales tax exemption from the government which applies to both our locally-assembled SUVs the ASX Compact SUV and Outlander seven-seater SUV. The good sales also reveal brand and customer’s loyalty in these very tough times,” said Tomoyuki Shinnishi, Chief Executive Officer of MMM.
The good news is set to continue for MMM following their recent announcement that the new Mitsubishi XPANDER would be launched by this year. Aside from that, recently MMM also launched the “Test Drive2U” online test drive booking service where you can now book test drives without leaving your home.
Additionally, Mitsubishi owners can now also book their service appointments via the Mitsubishi Connect app, available on the Google Play Store and Apple App Store, for free.
The Mitsubishi CONNECT app allows customers to schedule service appointments and monitor their vehicle’s maintenance history. Owners can also receive reminders on their next service and more conveniently, register more than one vehicle under one account.
In preparation for the arrival of the new XPANDER, a selected number of Mitsubishi Malaysia showrooms will be upgraded to Mitsubishi Motor’s latest Visual Identity (VI) this year to maintain the company’s number one position in providing excellent after-sales service.
