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.
