Mitsubishi Pajero is the best-selling car in the Middle East?
Yesterday, we received a press release from Mitsubishi’s UAE dealer, with the title “Al Habtoor Motors celebrates Pajero being the No. 1 car in the Middle East.” On further prodding their people to clarify, we were told it is the best-selling car around. The Mitsubishi Pajero?
The press release doesn’t go into too much detail either. “Mitsubishi Pajero has in the last three decades has placed itself to the top slot in the highly competitive Middle East market. The legendary off road supremo continues to capture the hearts of driver’s seeking the real off road adventure thrills.”
After that, the story diverts towards their “best Japanese value in the UAE” offer with installments starting at Dhs 525 with the ‘Mitsubishi Solutions’ plan, as part of celebrations on the Pajero’s success. Customers can also benefit from free one-year insurance, free service, free 3M Paint Protection and a 5-year warranty.
While we agree that the Mitsubishi Pajero is a sales success here as the default alternative to the Toyota Prado, whether is has somehow become the top-selling car in the entire Middle East is a completely different story. Last we heard, the top-selling car in the UAE was the Toyota Corolla.
