2. Global Sales Performance
Global sales volume for the nine months ended December 31, 2018 increased 15% year-on-year to 894,000 units.
ASEAN sales increased 27% year-on-year to 235,000 units, primarily driven by the strong demand for the XPANDER next-generation crossover MPV.
Sales in Europe increased 29% year-on-year to 168,000 units, driven by the continued robust performance of the Eclipse Cross and Outlander PHEV in Western Europe and the locally produced Outlander in Russia.
Sales volumes increased year-on-year in all regions, including our Bed-rock market of Oceania and our Focus markets of North America and China, others. We are thus progressing generally in line with the full-year forecasts announced at the start of the current fiscal year.
