MITSUBISHI MOTORS' VEHICLE SALES NEAR 13,000 UNITS FOR APRIL -- SPORTS MODELS LEAD COMPANY'S PRODUCT LINE

 CYPRESS, Calif., May 4 /PRNewswire/ -- With more than half of its monthly sales represented within the sporty and performance segments, Mitsubishi Motor Sales of America Inc. (MMSA) today announced total vehicle sales of 12,946 units for the month of April. Strong sellers for the company included the domestically produced Eclipse sports coupe which reached its second highest sales month for 1993, with nearly 4,700 units, and the 3000GT grand touring sports car, nearing the 1,500-unit level.
 "While several of our sports models continued sales momentum at high levels, customer purchases of other models have not matched that pace due to the uncertain economy," said Kevin Ormes, vice president of sales. "We anticipate an increased level of sales within the mid- range segments during the summer months, especially with the upcoming introduction of our newly redesigned '94 Galant."
 Galant is scheduled to begin appearing in dealer showrooms during June and will feature a host of new safety and design refinements such as dual airbags, a fully independent four-wheel multilink suspension, four-valve-per-cylinder engine technology and available four-wheel anti-lock brakes. According to Ormes, beginning prices for the Galant S model will be approximately $13,600.
 Ormes also noted that the continuation of the company's luxury lease program resulted in increased sales for 3000GT, Diamante luxury performance sedan and Montero sport/utility vehicle models.
 Mitsubishi Motor Sales of America Inc. was established in 1982 by Mitsubishi Motors Corp., Tokyo, and markets a full line of subcompacts, mid-size sedans, sports coupes, grand touring sports cars, luxury performance sedans, sport wagons, light trucks and sport/utility vehicles.
