FRANKLIN, Tenn. – Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. (MMNA)  today announced it closed the 2019 calendar year with its best annual sales performance since 2007.

With 121,046 vehicles sold, total calendar year 2019 sales represented an increase of 2.5 percent over 2018. This performance marks the seventh consecutive year of annual sales increases for the brand, and the third-straight year of sales over 100,000 vehicles.

In December 2019, MMNA recorded sales of 9,915 units, up 10.3 percent over December 2018.

"Sales figures are obviously one key metric for any brand, and by that measure, 2019 was a year of great success and growth at MMNA," said Fred Diaz, President and CEO, MMNA. "But we have so much more to celebrate as we start 2020. We reached our seventh consecutive year of sales increases, relocated our national headquarters to Franklin, Tennessee, and added nearly 40 new dealer partners to our network, all marking the reinvention of Mitsubishi Motors in the U.S. And there's more good news on the horizon, including all-new and substantially refreshed vehicles that will launch throughout the year ahead."
