My thoughts on all things motoring, press releases, reviews & techie stuff, from around the world.
Please note that the pictures of vehicles within this blog are used as examples of the specific press releases, on occasions, due to the lack of available official pictures, examples are re-produced.
ANY AND ALL PROFANITIES WILL BE REMOVED AND THE PERSON/S RESPONSIBLE WILL BE BANNED, NO EXCEPTIONS.
I will try my best to provide detailed info on various cars and what is like to live with them, I have already produced a few for Jaguar-car-forums, I will do my best to be unbiased, but it will be hard for some cars. I will re-produce press releases and copy from other motoring news.

USA SALES MARCH - MITSUBISHI - The sales just keep on growing for the brand.
Mitsubishi exceeds 100,000 FY16 sales for the first time since 2007
Fourth consecutive fiscal year of sales growth
Outlander posts best March sales ever; Outlander March sales increase 96.4 percent over last year
Mirage G4 post its best sales month ever

Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. (MMNA) reported March 2017 sales of 11,766 an increase of 6.2 percent over March 2016. With a strong final month, Mitsubishi's fiscal year 2016 sales closed with over 100,000 sales for the first time since 2007.
Leading the way for the brand in March was the popular three-row CUV Outlander, which posted its best March sales month ever with 4,235, an increase of 96.4 percent over March 2016.
In just four years, Mitsubishi's volume growth has increased 75 percent and sales per dealer/per month have almost doubled in that same time period.
"Eclipsing 100,000 fiscal-year sales is a very important milestone for Mitsubishi and truly signals growth with our brand and the strengthening of our dealer body," said Don Swearingen, executive vice president and COO, Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. "And the future looks even brighter. Mitsubishi's solid CUV lineup of Outlander and Outlander Sport gets even stronger with the recently announced Eclipse Cross slated to hit dealerships in early 2018."
Total 2017 calendar-year sales are up 15.6 percent compared to last year at this time with 29,147 units sold.
