Mitsubishi auto sales in the U-S and Canada are down nearly 47% for August. The Japan based auto manufacturer reports more than 4,200 vehicles sold last month. The top selling model is the Outlander Sport SUV, which began production at the plant in Normal in July. Mitsubishi executives say they expect Outlander sport sales to rise because of a new marketing campaign that began last weekend with the theme "unpretentious." Sales of the all electric "I" continued steady but small with 37 for the month and 403 so far this year.
