SEAT has concluded the first half of 2019 with its highest ever sales figure. Global deliveries of the Spanish car manufacturer have risen by 8.4%, bringing the total amount of sales to 314,300 cars. For the first time ever, SEAT sold more than 300,000 vehicles in the first half of the year and exceeds the record set in the same period of 2018 (standing at 289,900).
In June, SEAT increased its sales above 10% for the second month in a row. More specifically, it sold 57,300 cars worldwide, which is 11.5% more than in June 2018. This figure represents the best month of June in the history of SEAT, even better than the result obtained in 2018 (51,400 vehicles).
Deliveries of the CUPRA* brand also set a first half record. To date, CUPRA has sold 12,700 cars, which is 73.1% more than in the same period of 2018.
SEAT Vice-president for Sales and Marketing and CUPRA CEO Wayne Griffiths made a very positive assessment of the first half results: “We are growing faster than our initial expectations, and this is despite the difficult environment we are in, where registrations in most European countries are either decreasing or stagnating. This favourable evolution is enabling us to gain market share and relevance. We believe that the scenario for the second half of the year will be very similar to recent months. However, we expect that SEAT and CUPRA will maintain the same upward trend.”
From January to June, global SEAT sales went up thanks to the boost provided by key markets for the company.
