The Mitsubishi L300 is displaying consistency when it comes to sales performance in the local market. It has been a top seller from Mitsubishi Motor Philippines Corporation (MMPC) for almost every month of this year so far, reflecting the trust that Filipino car buyers have placed on the commercial vehicle (CV) can offer.
As a result, the L300 is MMPC’s best-selling model in the first half of 2021, garnering a total of 6,021 units sold. What’s more impressive is that the Mitsubishi CV has a good chance of doubling its 2020 sales of 6,791 units before this year ends. It could potentially take over the Mirage G4 subcompact sedan’s throne as Mitsubishi’s sales leader in the Philippines.
The Mitsubishi L300 is a reliable CV used mainly by many Filipino entrepreneurs in moving their businesses safely. MMPC offers it with various body configurations to cater to the different CV needs in the market, ranging from a refrigerated delivery van, to cab & chassis and flat-bed trucks.
It gets the job done
Under the hood, the Mitsubishi CV uses a Euro 4-compliant 2.2-liter inline-4 diesel engine with a turbocharged intercooler system capable of generating 98 hp and 200 Nm of torque at 1,000 to 3,500 rpm. The engine sends power to the rear wheels through its 5-speed manual transmission as standard.
Aside from the said features, one of the most probable reasons why the Mitsubishi L300 is selling well in the country is because of the need for delivery services. Due to the quarantine restrictions, many local businesses have resorted to selling their products online, and these transactions require handling by courier companies.
The Mitsubishi Xpander takes second place in MMPC's H1 2021 sales
Following the L300 in MMPC’s sales in H1 2021 are the Mitsubishi Xpander MPV and Mirage G4. The Xpander posted sales of 5,543 units, while the Mirage G4 managed to sell 3,737 units. Both Mitsubishi vehicles are ideal choices among Filipino families thanks to the interior space, affordability, and adequate features they offer in the market.
