MITSUBISHI MOTORS POSTS HIGHEST SALES FOR '93; DOMESTICALLY BUILT PRODUCTS LEAD THE WAY

 CYPRESS, Calif., July 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Continuing its reign of strong sales performance for 1993, Mitsubishi Motors' domestically built Eclipse sports coupe reached a new milestone for the company, with sales of 6,851 units for the month of June while marking the model's largest month-end sales this year. Eclipse sales surpassed last month's figures by 32 percent and contributed to the company's highest monthly sales for 1993, reaching a reported 17,175 units.
 According to Kevin Ormes, vice president of sales for Mitsubishi Motor Sales of America, domestically built products like Eclipse reinforce the company's commitment to the American economy and beginning this year will represent more than 60 percent of Mitsubishi's sales volume.
 "We're paving the way for our two largest volume products to be built and sold in the United States," said Ormes. "Our most popular products have consistently been the Eclipse and Galant, and now, with the July 1st launch of our '94 Galant, next month's sales should reflect our determination to provide additional American-built quality and value-driven choices for consumers."
 Beginning prices for Galant will start at $13,600 and feature a host of new safety and design refinements such as dual airbags, a fully independent four-wheel multilink suspension, four-valve per cylinder technology and available four-wheel anti-lock brakes.
 Mitsubishi's luxury products continued to report high levels, with Diamante reaching a record high for the year at 2,432 units and 3000GT continuing to be a leader in its segment with sales of 1,261 units. Ormes noted that 3000GT is one of the only products in the luxury sports performance segment to continuously increase its sales during current economic conditions, and more significantly, set new record levels following three years of sales.
 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.
