A record sales result in June by Suzuki Australia has confirmed its position as one of the fastest growing brands in the country.
A total of 2419 new Suzukis were sold in June, making it the best ever month in the company’s history and continues a remarkable run of 19 straight months of increased month on month sales.
The June result represented a 2.2 per cent increase over the previous record result, posted in June 2007.
“Another record result confirms Suzuki is now being considered against the historical volume players in the Australian market,” said Suzuki Australia General Manager Tony Devers.
“More customers are taking notice of the extraordinary value for money available with Suzuki product and we are on track for another record year in 2008.
“With rising petrol prices having a noticeable effect on customer choices, Suzuki is perfectly positioned to offer a range of vehicles offering great fuel economy, superb build quality and terrific value for money.”
The SX4 range continued its impressive run of sales success in June, with 439 sold up 74 per cent over the June 2007 figure.
The best selling Swift line-up had another stellar month with 1356 sales, making it the highest selling month ever by Swift, a testimony to its design, performance and great re-sale value.
World-wide production of the award-winning light car passed one million in June – less than four years since production started reaching the milestone faster than any previous Suzuki model.
The SUV line-up rounded out the record month, with Grand Vitara sales up 21 per cent and Jimny sales up 35 per cent over the June 2007 result.
Devers said the record June result meant the company was on track for another record sales result in 2008.
“Halfway through the year we have recorded total sales of 12,140 units, representing an 11.3 per cent increase over the 2007 figure.
“SX4 sales are up 220 per cent, Jimny sales up 34 per cent and APV sales up 50 per cent, while Grand Vitara and Swift have maintained the same record pace they set in 2007.”
