Vauxhall has continued its strong performance in Scotland over the course of the important month of September.
Figures from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) showed that the firm had sold 2,000 vehicles over the course of the month, adding to the 12,000 that have already flown out of the showrooms in 2012.
September is a crucial month for the automotive industry as it signals the introduction of the latest licence plates and motorists all over are usually looking to purchase the newest vehicle.
Vauxhall’s strong performance in Scotland is being driven by popular vehicles such as the Corsa, Astra and Zafira MPV which have all yielded high sales figures over the course of the month.
Gordon Hannen, Vauxhall’s regional operations manager for Scotland, said: “We are delighted to be Scotland’s biggest selling car manufacturer and very happy with the Corsa’s supremacy in what is a highly important market for us.”
