General Motors’ Australian subsidiary, Holden, sold 11,928 vehicles in June 2015, a 3.3 percent decline on a year-over-year basis. The results give Holden a 9.5 percent market share for the month.
The Commodore and Colorado were in the top 10 sellers list for the month, and several other models achieved best-ever sales performance, including Trax, Captiva 5 and Colorado.
Holden Executive Director of Sales, Peter Keley, said the results themselves were pleasing and a strong indication of Holden continuing to implement its long-term plan.
“June’s sales results are a reflection of the hard work of the entire Holden team and our Dealer partners. It is a positive result but we remain focussed on the long game. We are executing our long-term plan, step by step, centred around our three key pillars: brand, product and customer experience.
“Holden is going through a very challenging transformation and we will continue to face challenges. This is not an easy road to walk, but we have the people and the plan to make this company a success for many years to come.
“Just this year we’ve launched our European-sourced Astra, Cascada and Insignia models, which are opening up the Holden brand to a fresh audience. And these three models are just the start of a new-model onslaught that will see Holden launch 24 major vehicles over the next five years.
“Our brand campaign continues to resonate with Australians and while there remains plenty of work for us to do in this space, sales results like June’s prove Holden still means a lot to Australian customers,” said Mr. Keley.
