Based on the data of the research organization iSeeCars, recently, two Mitsubishi crossovers – Outlander and Eclipse Cross, began to significantly lose popularity. This is the US market.

According to analytics website iSeeCars, which compiled data on more than 9 million new and used vehicles sold in the US between November 2019 and June 2020, the Japanese Mitsubishi Outlander crossover was the slowest-selling new car in the United States during that period. …

It should be noted that, according to research by iSeeCars, the Outlander took an average of 197.7 days to sell.

The second place is taken by another crossover from Mitsubishi – Eclipse Cross. Still, this model sold a little faster, taking only 187.7 days to sell. In comparison, the average time for all new vehicles is 96.9 days.

If you think about it, this is not surprising at all. Mitsubishi is having a rough time in the United States, posting a 76% decline in sales in the second quarter of 2020 compared to the same period in 2019. Both crossovers will also receive significant updates soon, which should affect buyers’ interest in them.

Needless to say, the brand has had problems lately, not only in the US, but also in other parts of the world, especially in Europe. The automaker wants to accelerate its presence with an updated lineup, as does its alliance partner Nissan. Mitsubishi is set to revamp its US vehicle lineup, while production and sales of new vehicles in Europe will stall as the automaker’s management plans to focus on Southeast Asia.

Not so long ago, we wrote that Mitsubishi will stop exporting crossovers to Europe from September 2020. It is reported that the management of Mitsubishi plans to stop supplying crossovers to Europe as early as September this year, which could harm the automaker’s dealers on the Old Continent. We are talking about a plug-in hybrid version of the Outlander, ASX and coupe Eclipse Cross.
