Last week General Motors South Africa (GMSA) announced its new vehicle sales figures for May 2008. The figures reveal that its light commercial vehicles outsold passenger vehicles by some margin which is in contrast with current global trends whereby demand for light commercials and trucks has declined significantly.
GMSA light commercial vehicles sold well enough to maintain leadership of the ½ ton segment for the 37th consecutive month. The Corsa Utility was instrumental in this feat with 1850 sales. Sales of the Utility have been consistently high since it was first introduced in 2004.
“The Corsa Utility’s reliability and build quality make it the perfect choice for customers looking for a practical small bakkie” says Tim Hendon, GMSA Product Communications Manager. “It also comes with a range of powerful yet economical petrol and diesel engines in addition to carrying capacity of up to 738kg’s and surprising interior cabin space”.
The other light commercial vehicle doing well in the GMSA stable is the Isuzu KB range with sales of 1432. This brings the total number of light commercial vehicles sold by GMSA in May to 3341.
