General Motors South Africa (GMSA) sold 5 155 vehicles in the country last month, up 4% versus July 2015. According to the National Automobile Association Manufacturers of South Africa (NAAMSA) sales rankings, the industry reported sales down 5.5% versus July 2015.
According to Brian Olson, GMSA Vice President for Vehicles Sales, Service and Marketing, Opel continued to grow with volumes increasing by 76% versus the same period last year. Meanwhile, the recently launched Chevrolet Cruze continues to find favour with South African consumers as August was also the single biggest Chevrolet volume month since October of 2014.
Olson added that customers can look forward to an enhanced Isuzu KB later this month when the new range is launched. “There are many additions to the range, some of which include the introduction of a 4×4 automatic on the 3.0 LX and the introduction of extended and crew cab models, including value for money entry level extended and double cab derivatives. The new additions will place the Isuzu light commercial vehicle portfolio in a very competitive position,” said Olson.
