KUALA LUMPUR: Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia (MMM), the official distributor of Mitsubishi Motors vehicles in Malaysia, has recorded a total sales of 4,008 units between the period of January to July 2020.

This resulted in the company’s market share growing from 1.4 per cent (January to July 2019) to 1.7 per cent (January to July 2020) of the Total Industry Volume (TIV), the company said in a statement today.

“The company’s volume seller, the Triton, recorded a 22.2% market share from January to July, an increase from the same corresponding period of 2019 which was at 16.9%.

“The Triton is now ranked number one in the double-cab pick-up truck segment in three states — Malacca, Penang and Kedah,” it said.

Its chief executive officer, Tomoyuki Shinnishi, said the improved sales was largely because of the sales tax suspension.

He expected the upcoming Xpander crossover would boost sales further.

To prepare for the introduction of the Xpander, Shinnishi said selected showrooms would be upgraded to Mitsubishi Motor’s latest visual identity this year.
