Mitsubishi April sales got off to a hot start and ended in the same fashion; reporting the best sales figures in seven years. Overall, sales were up 25.6 percent, with the Outlander Sport recording its best April ever!
It was also the 14th consecutive month in which year-over-year sales numbers increased. MMNA Executive Vice President, Don Swearingen said, “In March, we finished the first quarter of 2015 with an incredible sales pace. And that momentum carried over into April with our core models continuing to lead the way.”
As usual, the Outlander Sport led the way with 2,674 units sold. The Mirage 5-door sub-compact also had an impressive month with 2,407 units sold. In total, Mirage year-to-date sales figures are up 65.4 percent.

Mitsubishi is putting the final nail in the coffin of its one-of-a-kind performance car. The Mitsubishi Lancer Evo is heading off lots for good. The good news is that the automaker is offering 1,000 of a special Final Edition model. The bad news is that the model isn’t going to see United States shores, not from the automaker at least.
There’s no replacement planned for the Evo, undeniably one of Mitsubishi’s most recognizable cars. After the announcement of the Final Edition model, Mitsubishi followed up by announcing it won’t be offered in the United States. The Evo Final Edition limited to Japan doesn’t have many changes under the hood but the car itself looks and rides better than ever.
The Final Edition will see the normal 291 hp 2L turbocharged inline engine with the only difference being sodium filled exhaust valves. The car rides on Bilstein shocks, Eibach springs, and BBS alloys. Upgraded Brembo brakes are also a part of the package. Inside is a plaque with the vehicle’s serial number on it, identifying it as one of a kind.
Oddly enough, Australia will see a few of the Final Edition model heading its way.
While we here at Biggers Mitsubishi aren’t happy to see the Lancer Evo go, we’re sure Mitsubishi will come up with something even better in the future.
If you’re like us here at Biggers Mitsubishi, the Lancer EVO X is probably one of your favorite vehicles of all time. Take not that we said “vehicles” and not just simply “sports cars.” The Lancer is nothing short of a classic. But all good things must come to an end, and it’s now time for the Lancer to drive off into the horizon.
However, before it’s all over, though, we’ll get to see a couple limited production runs of the beautiful Lancer Final Edition—Mitsubishi’s love-letter-like goodbye to the popular model. The Final Edition, which will first hit the market in Japan, impresses right from the first glimpse of its amped-up exterior. It has a new black chrome grille, black trim all around, and a wicked rear spoiler.
As far as performance goes, the Final Edition is no 500-horsepower monster, but it does manage to tweak and improve the vehicle’s formula. For example, it has Bilstein shocks, Brembo brakes, special new wheels, and more to give you the best driving experience possible.
Mitsubishi will only make 1,000 of these Final Edition models for Japan, and we expect a similar-sized run here in the States. Check back with us on the blog for more updates on the Lancer’s availability soon. Also, come see us to check out all the excellent vehicles in our inventory—especially the brand-new Outlander—today.
