ARTHURS ANNOUNCE 'GREAT START' TO 2019
21st January 2019
Arthurs Vauxhall, the award-winning Vauxhall dealers with branches in Oswestry and Newtown, announce they have had a ‘great start’ to 2019.
David Goldthorpe, Retail Operator, explained how they started the year with two sales events supported by Vauxhall. “They were very successful and we hit our new car target for January before 15th January, and our used car sales target for the month was achieved before 20th January.”
David continued: “Our sales teams have put an incredible amount of work into achieving these fabulous performances, and I would publicly like to offer them my thanks.
“We have had a record-breaking year in 2018 and we intend to keep up this momentum through 2019.
“We have been selling our Network Q used cars over a much wider area during 2018, including some to Scotland, but the vast majority have been sold in Powys and all over Shropshire. In particular, we have doubled our sales of SUVs in 2018 with the Vauxhall Mokka being particularly popular with buyers.
“Interestingly, Autotrader recently announced the Vauxhall Mokka was the fastest selling car in the UK of all used cars offered on their website. Based on our experience, this is not surprising.”
Derek Wilson, Vauxhall Motors Director Used Cars, said: ‘Vauxhall is delighted the Mokka has proved so popular with used car buyers. It is testament to the enduring appeal of the Mokka as well as the strength of the Vauxhall brand. The demand continues to be very strong and we expect this to continue through 2019.”
David concluded: “Given the continuing demand for used Mokka’s we are going to increase our stock of these popular models, but I should add we still sell a large number of used cars to customers who ask us to source a car for them, including Mokkas. So if anyone is interested in a used car and we don’t have one in stock we make every effort to find one.”
