June has been another stellar month for Suzuki Auto SA as it closed in on 5 000-sales in a single month. Suzuki Auto SA sold 4 622 vehicles for an overall passenger vehicle market share of 15.26% firmly putting Suzuki in the third place overall, behind Volkswagen, which includes Audi, and Toyota, including Lexus and Hino.
According to naamsa, the automotive industry body, Suzuki broke all three benchmark records in June. The dealer network broke its one-month-old sales record of 3 100 units with total sales of 3 419 units. Suzuki set a new outright record of 4 622 units, and the Swift sold 1 926 units, making it the top-selling passenger car.
While the Swift was South Africa’s favourite Suzuki, several other models also performed well ahead of expectations. A total of 340 South Africans drove off in the all-new Baleno, 569 S-Presso models found new homes and 657 new Vitara Brezzas were delivered to customers. A total of 397 Jimny models were sold, making it one of South Africa’s favourite off-road capable vehicles. In the commercial vehicle market, the value-for-money Super Carry recorded 112 sales. The Suzuki department responsible for fleet, rental and government sales sold 1 200 units in June.
