The Star Malaysia - StarBiz - - News -

PETALING JAYA: 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 and July 2020.

This re­sulted in the com­pany’s mar­ket share grow­ing from 1.4% (Jan­uary to July 2019) to 1.7% (Jan­uary to July 2020) of the to­tal in­dus­try vol­ume (TIV), the com­pany said in a state­ment.

“The com­pany’s vol­ume seller, Mit­subishi Tri­ton, recorded a 22.2% mar­ket share from Jan­uary to July 2020, 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 – Me­laka, Pe­nang and Kedah,” it said.

Chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer To­moyuki Shin­nishi said MMM was 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,” he said.
