All time high - record sales quarter for Suzuki in the UKOct 06, 2014
Suzuki GB PLC is pleased to announce record registrations for the third Quarter of this year at 11,705 units, beating the previous closest record by 52 units set in 2004. It is also a record market share for the period at 1.74 per cent.
It was a record September for new registrations too with sales of 8,070 cars, overtaking the previous best figure by 150 units, also achieved in 2004. Year to date, Suzuki has sold 31,431 cars making it the highest figure ever recorded for the brand in the first nine months of the year. Suzuki aims to achieve more than 37,000 sales by the end of this year.
The high upturn in sales over the last nine months has proved yet again that demand remains strong for Suzuki’s stylish range of models in the UK. This year, sales of the Zero VED Alto city car have again made it the most popular car in the range with 12,000 units sold.
The good news for Suzuki buyers continues into the winter as well with a further extension of its VAT Free offers now running until December 31. Alto, Splash, Swift (except Sport) and the outgoing SX4 models are all included and represent significant savings.
Looking to the near future, Suzuki will introduce two new models in the fastest growing segments of the market, one of which is the Celerio City car that will go on sale in February 2015. This all-new model will be produced in Thailand and offers room for five occupants, class leading luggage capacity and exceptional fuel economy.
Unveiled at the Paris Motor Show this month, the new Vitara SUV model will go on sale next April. Vitara will be available with a choice of petrol or diesel engines, optional 4x4 capability via Suzuki’s ALLGRIP technology and will also be offered with a wide range of personalisation options. The new car will be built for Europe in Hungary at Magyar Suzuki alongside S-Cross and Swift.
