Breaking almost every sales record in a single month, Suzuki Auto South Africa celebrates a stellar January thanks to the many sales milestones that were met. Naamsa, the automotive industry business council, announced that Suzuki Auto South Africa was only behind Toyota and Volkswagen as they managed to be the third best-selling vehicle manufacturer for the month. Notably, Suzuki Bassonia proudly broke the single dealer sales record as they continue to achieve great success within the SA motoring industry.

Breaking the stats down into simple terms, the following accomplishments were made across the country:

  • The brand reached a top 3 position and set a new sales record
  • The Swift became the first Suzuki vehicle to sell more than 1 000 units in a month
  • Every dealership outperformed its targets and reached a new all-time dealer channel record

On its own, Suzuki Bassonia made 161 sales and, as previously mentioned, set a new single dealer sales record. This achievement was made possible by the highly skilled professionals at the Bassonia dealership as well as the many amazing customers that began new journeys in January. Following Bassonia, the other 4 dealers within the top 4 were Northcliff (104 units), Menlyn (93 units), Bryanston (89 units) and Bramley (83 units).

In their report, Naamsa notes that the industry as a whole has made some significant strides in terms of recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. The Manager of Auto Dealer Sales at Suzuki Auto South Africa, Henno Havenga, made the following statement: “We have been working hard with our head office in Japan to increase our order volumes and sourcing destinations, widen our product offering and contain price increases. This is already evident in our range today but will become even more clear as we introduce a host of product upgrades and new models in the coming months”.

Suzuki Bassonia would like to take this opportunity to thank the incredible team at the dealership for all their hard work. Every employee from those within the sales team to every technician in the workshop has played a vital role in establishing the location as one of the country’s premier Suzuki dealerships.
