SEAT grows by 16% in April
- Worldwide brand sales went up by 14.5% since the beginning of the year
- Spain, the United Kingdom and Germany post double digit growth
- SEAT achieves all-time record sales figures until April in the United Kingdom, Mexico, Turkey, Austria, Switzerland and Israel
- Next week SEAT will present the new Ateca FR at Automobile Barcelona
According to SEAT Vice-President for Marketing and Sales Wayne Griffiths, “SEAT’s April sales are fully in line with the sharp increase of the first quarter of the year. The Ateca is pushing up our worldwide sales, and at the same time, the Leon facelift is bringing in a considerable volume of both individual and corporate customers, such as the recent delivery in Turkey of the largest fleet sale in our history. Sales of the end of the current generation Ibiza are also making positive progress”.
Spain, the United Kingdom and Germany, SEAT’s three largest markets, are making a major contribution to the evolution of the brand’s sales. In the first four months of the year, Spain remains the company’s main market with sales of 33,800 vehicles (+22.9%), followed by Germany (29,700; +10.0%) and the United Kingdom (20,800; +23.7%). France, one of SEAT’s strategic markets, is also performing very well, reaching 8,800 vehicles, or 20.2% more. Austria (6,300; +29.0%) and Switzerland (3,400; +69.6%) are maintaining their strong upward trend, and in both countries SEAT is among the top 10 brands sold. SEAT ended the first four months of the year with all-time record sales in the United Kingdom, Mexico, Turkey, Austria, Switzerland and Israel.
SEAT began the presales of the new Ibiza in April, and it will be available in showrooms in June. From Monday 1 May until 18 May, 800 journalists from 30 countries will test drive the new Ibiza and find out everything about the new model at the international presentation being held in Barcelona. The new Ibiza will be highlighted as well at Automobile Barcelona, which kicks off on 11 May. SEAT is also presenting the world premiere of the new Ateca FR, the sportiest version of the brand’s first SUV.
