In Germany, Mitsubishi Motors continues to develop significantly better than the overall market: The Japanese automobile brand recorded a total of 46,347 new car registrations in 2020. After six years of growth in a row, this means a decrease of 14.4% compared to 2019. However, Mitsubishi developed far better than the overall German passenger car market.
With 21,103 new registrations, the Mitsubishi Space Star is responsible for this. The new generation of the small car, which features a sharper design as well as improved connectivity and security, is celebrating a very successful debut on the German market.
In second place of the most popular Mitsubishi models in Germany is the Mitsubishi Outlander Plug-in Hybrid with 8,148 new registrations. The top 5 is completed by the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross (6,838 units), Mitsubishi ASX (6,445 units) and the conventionally powered Mitsubishi Outlander (2,443 units).
The combination of gasoline and electric motors already accounts for almost 18% of Mitsubishi's total sales - a figure that is likely to increase in the future. the new Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross PHEV will be available from spring and benefits from Mitsubishi's decades of experience and expertise in electrified drives. The result is low consumption and reduced CO2 values as well as the option of driving purely electrically on most everyday routes.
I can't wait to see a fully electric car from Mitsubishi!
