SsangYong gains foothold in NZ market with sales increase

SsangYong Motor Company has increased its global sales by 53% for the first half of 2011 compared with the same period last year. The Korean carmaker sold a total of 55,873 vehicles in the period and is looking to build on the positive result.

SsangYong had its biggest manufacturing quarter in the second quarter of 2011, a growth of 45% over the corresponding period in 2010 and the highest quarterly sales volume achieved since the third quarter of 2007.  This coincides with SsangYong NZ’s biggest month ever for sales in June 2011 with nearly 70 vehicles sold nationwide.

SsangYong NZ General Manager Deon Cooper says this is a great sign for the SsangYong Brand globally.  “It demonstrates that SsangYong is moving ahead successfully under its new ownership and it means SsangYong NZ can get on with our plan of providing quality and affordable SUV’s and Utes to New Zealanders.” 

Over the past few months, SsangYong has been introducing the Automatic Korando SUV to the New Zealand market with a price tag of $34,990.

By early 2012, SsangYong NZ will be introducing a new Ute to the market.  “We are very excited about the new SsangYong Ute,” said Mr Cooper.  “Watch this space.”

In the past few months, SSangYong NZ has grown its nationwide Dealership Network with Rotorua SsangYong and Baywater Vehicles, Hawkes Bay joining the team of Dealers.
