2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport (RVR) sells 5,000 units in Japan in its first month

Mitsubishi announced today that the 2011 RVR (known as ASX in Europe) has sold over 5,000 units in its first month on sale in Japan. Officials had originally hoped to sell 1,500 units on a monthly basis, but have already sold a total 5,169 units.

Of the units sold, 75 percent are of the highest “G” specification. 18 percent were the mid-level “M” spec, while 7 percent were the entry-level “E.”

The RVR will be known as the 2011 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport in the U.S. and will make its stateside debut at the 2010 New York Auto Show at the end of this month.

Power will come from a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine helping it deliver an estimated fuel-economy of 30 mpg. All-wheel-drive will be available as an option.
