Canada continues to be one of Mitsubishi’s top markets for Outlander PHEV sales.
The calendar year ended on a strong note with the best December on record for MMSCAN with total retail sales of 2,686 units. It continued a string of best months on record for Mitsubishi Motors in Canada with each month of the 2023 calendar year setting a new sales record for that particular month.

“Our CY23 results demonstrate the continued strength and growth of the Mitsubishi Motors brand in Canada and reaffirm that we’re selling the type of vehicles Canadians are looking for,” said Kenji Harada, President and CEO.
As it looks toward the future, Harada said MMSCAN also took important steps in 2023 to increase capacity for growth by adding a second port in Nanaimo, B.C. for vehicle imports, as well as significantly increasing the size of its Parts Distribution Centre in Mississauga, Ontario.
