Mitsubishi Motors Corporation has announced global production, as well as domestic sales and export results for November 2005.

Total global production was 122,798 units, an increase of 8.8 percent from November 2004. Domestically, 63,324 units were produced in the month, 18 percent more than the same period last year.

Total sales in Japan came to 21,110 units, or a 19.7 percent increase on the previous period's figure due to strong sales of the new SUV Outlander, which sold 3,226 units in November. This figure surpasses by 61.3 percent its monthly sales target of 2,000 units. Domestic sales have now increased year-on-year for seven consecutive months. Total sales for passenger cars were 14,132 units, 133.5 percent of last year's volume, while commercial vehicle sales slightly decreased to 6,978 units, or 98.9 percent year-on-year.

Overseas production for the month was stable at 59,474 units, or 100.4 percent of the amount manufactured in November last year. European production was down 46.4 percent compared to last year's volume, to 6,410 units, mainly due to the ceasing of production of Space Star and Pajero Pinin. An increase in China made a contribution to the total Asian production, which gained 6.3 percent year-on-year to 39,416 units. Production in North America, which saw a contribution from the production of the new Eclipse sporty coupe, also increased 43.5 percent to 8,568 units.

Total exports from Japan rose to 29,705 units, a 15.5 percent increase from last year's volume. Lead by healthy sales in Russia, exports to Europe increased to 9,464 units, or 69.9 percent more than the same period last year. Exports to Asia were stable at 3,489 units, or 101.2 percent year-on-year, while exports to North America dropped to 2,598 units, or 83.7 percent compared to the year before.
