TOKYO, July 25, 2018 - (JCN Newswire) - Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) today announced first-quarter financial results for Fiscal Year 2018 ended March 31, 2019 (1Q/FY2018).

1Q/FY2018 Financial Results Highlights

Mitsubishi Motors reported net sales for 1Q/FY2018, up 27.0% year-on-year to 560.0 billion yen. Operating profit rose from 20.6 billion yen in the same period of FY2017 to 28.1 billion yen (up 36.4% year-on-year), representing an operating margin of 5.0%. The company generated net income of 28.2 billion yen (up 22.6% year-on-year) for the latest 3-month period.

Global Sales Performance

Global sales volume for 1Q/FY2018 increased 21% year-on-year to 292,000 units.

ASEAN sales increased by 28% to 69,000 units, driven by orders for pick-up trucks in Thailand and the strong performance of the new XPANDER MPV launched in Indonesia last fall.

In China, sales rose 50% year-on-year to 36,000 units due to strong demand for the localized Outlander.

Sales in North America increased by 25% year-on-year to 45,000 units. The growth was driven by solid demand for the Outlander PHEV and Eclipse Cross, which were launched in the latter half of 2017.
