SUZUKI CONFIDENT OF ACHIEVING SALES TARGET PRIOR TO CHINESE NEW YEAR
KUALA LUMPUR, — Suzuki Malaysia Automobile Sdn Bhd says it is on track to achieve its sales target of 6,000 cars for all models for the current financial year ending March 2010.
Managing director, Ibrahim Maidin said the company’s confidence was based on good sales record since June this year.
“We are 55 per cent on track now. With customers sentiment getting stronger, we are certain sales would increase for the coming Chinese New year.
“With upcoming promotions beginning November together with value-added offerings to customers, we are confident to hit our target,” he said to Bernama after the company’s Majlis Buka Puasa with the media here Wednesday.
He said the bulk of its total sales volume would be from Suzuki Swift, which currently comprised 85 per cent of total volume.
“Swift is our best selling model. We have been selling an average 300 units per month. But the last three months, sales volume has been more than 400 units per month.
“We have run out of stock and we are pushing for early arrival of our cars by November. So, we hope to cross 600 units per month,” Ibrahim added.
He said demand for Swift was on the rise as customers were satisfied with its performance together with its low maintenance cost.
The Swift costs RM73,788 (on the road, with insurance).
Meanwhile, the local distributor for Suzuki cars will be opening another three Suzuki showrooms by year end.
“Currently, we have 26 outlets nationwide. The next three would be in Seremban, Johor Baharu and Klang Valley,” Ibrahim disclosed.
The company’s vehicle range also includes the Grand Vitara, SX4 Sedan, SX4 Crossover and Swift Sport.
All models are fully imported from Japan.
