It was only in October 2020 when Suzuki first broke through the 2 000-sales level selling 2 032 units from dealerships, rental, and government sales. Now in March 2021 the Japanese vehicle manufacturer has smashed that record by selling 2 397 units which was a 12% increase on the previous record and a massive 92% increase over March 2020. (Note: Covid would have had an impact on March 2020 sales).
Reports from Naamsa indicate Suzuki now has 8,54% market share of passenger vehicles and 5,23% share of the total industry. This means Suzuki is outperforming the general vehicle sales market. The highlights from the March 2021 sales are the Suzuki Swift which remains the companies best selling model at 749 units, while the S-presso achieved sales of 527 units. New model Vitara Breeza also had an exceptional month at 390 units sold.
Divisional Sales manager Andre Venter contributes the record months sales to the hard-working dealer network which pulled out all the stops to deliver cars to the growing list of new Suzuki customers. He further states the business will work towards ensuring pricing, service plan and warranty support remain best in class along with dealership customer service.
