CYPRESS, Calif -- Mitsubishi Motors North America (MMNA) announced Monday November sales of the Outlander Sport were up 34.2 percent compared to November 2011.

Mitsubishi says in a press release that Outlander Sport sales were 1,520 for the month, the fourth highest monthly total this year for sales of the vehicle. Outlander Sport sales are up 9.5 percent compared to the same period a year ago.

“We are encouraged at the consistent sales performance of the Outlander Sport, our top seller in the U.S,” said MMNA President & CEO Yoichi Yokozawa. “It bodes well for our next generation 2014 Outlander, which we unveiled to the U.S. media last week.”

Overall Mitsubishi sales were 3,574 units, down 4.3 percent compared to November 2011. Mitsubishi says that total is impacted by models that ended their production in 2011. Total sales of models currently in production were up more than 16 percent for the month compared to last November.
