Suzuki Philippines Posts 19 Percent Growth for First 9 Months of 2019
Consistent with its strong performance for the first two quarters of the year, Suzuki Philippines (SPH) finishes the third quarter with positive growth yet again, enabling the company to post 19 percent sales growth for the first nine months of the year over the same period in 2018.
“Suzuki’s current standing in the Philippine automotive industry is a significant milestone for the brand. After securing the fourth spot in the Chamber of Automotive Manufacturers of the Philippines Inc. (CAMPI) ranking – the highest rank in the brand’s history – and climbing to the fifth spot in the local automotive industry roster last quarter, we at Suzuki Philippines can definitely say that 2019 has been a monumental year for the brand,” shared SPH Director and General Manager for Automobile Division Keiichi Suzuki.
“These back-to-back achievements further fuel our drive to deliver on the brand’s promise of quality driving experience with every Suzuki vehicle,” he added.
The Ertiga, Swift, and Celerio continue to be Suzuki’s best-selling vehicles. The models combined for 56 percent of total sales from January to September this year.
The Ertiga still dominates the Suzuki auto sales chart with a 34 percent share. Meanwhile, the Swift kept its position as the second top-selling Suzuki model with an 11.4 percent share of total sales. Finally, accounting for 11 percent share of sales, the Celerio ranks third among Suzuki’s top-selling vehicles.
Suzuki Philippines sees positive momentum moving forward, driven by the launch of new products such as the Carry small truck and the refreshed 2020 Vitara crossover.
