Global production down at Mitsubishi

Mitsubishi’s total global production was down by 9.4% in August, compared to the same period last year.

Overseas production for the month totalled 46,233 units in August, 20.2% percent of the total for the same period last year.

European production rose by 38.8% year-on-year to 6,364 units. This was due to the strong sales of Colt CZC Cabriolet this financial year.

Total exports from Japan fell year-on-year to 28,426 units, 15.9% down compared to August 2005. Exports to Europe decreased to 8,252 units, 17.7% down on August last year.

Mitsubishi said this was due in part to lower Pajero shipments ahead of a full model change later this fiscal year.
