For Mitsubishi, though there should be more fierce competition among car makers, but I still believe that at the end of the year MMTh should enjoy the continue good sales, so we’ve set the new sales target for 2011 at 62,000 units from our confidence in some key factors. First is the good sales performance in the first 5 months from our promptness in production at LCB thanks to strong support from MMC, our father company in Japan who put Thailand for priority and provide full support for MMTh production which help we can produce and deliver vehicle timely together with the right product line up that meet market demand such as  Triton and Pajero Sport 2.5 VG, Triton CNG and Lancer CNG or even Lancer EX which now become more popular. Other key factors are the good sales momentum that will continue in the second half combines with the introduction of new vehicles especially Mitsubishi Global Small which will certainly satisfy Mitsubishi Fan and the new marketing communication way that we use presenters to help communicate with target customers along with offering of various special sales campaign continuously. Those reasons make we are more positive in our sales and confident that MMTh will be able to break the record over past 15 years with 62,000 units at the end of the year.” Mr. Murahashi expressed.
