SEAT's October sales increase by 23.3%
Sales for first three quarters of 2017 also up by 14.4%
Automobile manufacturer SEAT sold 42,000 vehicles throughout October, an increase of 23.3% compared to the same period in 2016.
In the first ten months of the year, the multinational owned by Volkswagon, with its head office in Catalonia, sold 395,100 units, 14.4% more than last year.
SEAT’s vice-president Wayne Griffiths has called the results “excellent,” saying how they reflect “the positive trend” that has been maintained since the beginning of the year.
This improved sales performance can be attributed to a growth in both the German and Spanish markets, which increased by 30.5% and 24.9% respectively in October.
Models such as the ‘Ibiza’, ‘Leon’, and ‘Ateca’ have been the driving force behind the sales. The release of SEAT’s latest model, the SUV Arona is expected to keep the sales momentum going.
The company has said that up until the third quarter of 2017, profits have increased by 12.3% compared to last year, reaching 154 million euros.
