Mitsubishi Motors production up in July 2007

Mitsubishi Motors Corporation saw its production figures increase in July 2007.

The firm has indicated that 114,577 units were manufactured last month, a 6.9 per cent increase over numbers from July 2006.

Mitsubishi also stated that the recordings marked the fifth consecutive monthly increase in production since March 2007 and that Japanese volume went up year-on-year for the tenth time.

Strong sales of new models in the European market were cited by the firm as a large factor in the figures.

"Exports to Europe increased to 18,546 units, a substantial 49 percent rise on the back of firm sales of Lancer and Outlander models as well as brisk shipments of New Pajero, New Outlander and New Lancer models," the company commented.

A number of translations of the name Mitsubishi exist. One of them is three diamonds, on which the company’s logo is based.
