Mitsubishi Motors Corp. saw an 8-percent surge in its net income in the fiscal second quarter ended Sept. 30, 2014, to JPY32.7 billion ($298.9 million), boosted by good results in North America. The Japanese carmaker saw its revenues lie flat in the quarter at $4.76 billion. According to Mitsubishi, it posted a drop in pretax operating profits in Japan, where sales decline to an increase in taxes.
