Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia (MMM), the official distributor of Mitsubishi vehicles in Malaysia, sold 17,489 vehicles from January to December 2021, representing a 91 percent increase in sales compared to the same period in 2020.
The boost in sales is credited to the Mitsubishi Xpander which hit its best sales performance year with 7,397 units sold from January to December 2021.
This accomplishment has crowned the Xpander as the best-selling Japanese seven-seater crossover in Malaysia, unseating the Honda BR-V.
The Mitsubishi Triton pick-up truck also continued to enjoy its run of success with 9,268 units sold from January to December 2021. This is a 34 percent increase in sales as compared to the same period in 2020.
