100,000 Mitsubishi Triton Pick-Up Trucks Have Been Sold In Malaysia
The Mitsubishi Triton has proved extremely popular in Malaysia.
When it comes to pick-up trucks, everyone knows the Hilux is the one to beat. That doesn’t mean its rivals aren’t popular. Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia proved this this week when sales of its Triton pick-up truck officially surpassed 100,000 units in the country. In fact, the Triton has maintained a healthy market share of 22% in 2021 (9,268 units) despite the various challenges facing the industry.
While the Triton’s legacy can be traced back to the Mitsubishi L200, this 100,000 unit milestone only begins in 2005 with the introduction of the 4th generation Mitsubishi Triton and the formation of Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia.
To celebrate the achievement, Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia donated RM27,000 worth of diesel to its 100,000th Triton customer, Encik Muhammad Faerus who bought his unit at EON Auto Mart along Jalan Ampang. The amount it estimated to buy Encik Faerus enough fuel to drive his car 100,000km. Interestingly, the Triton is the only pick-up truck to get a 200,000km/5-year manufacturer warranty.
Here’s the press release with more.
