GAC Motor Achieves Record October Sales

GAC Motor Philippines accelerates its sales streak with another record month in October. The company announced its best-ever October performance with total retail sales soaring 523 percent year-over-year to 268 units based on the latest CAMPI-TMA report.

 The record October performance was yet another achievement in GAC Motor’s remarkable run in 2023 since being under Astara, helping year-to-date sales rise to 1,488 units, a 305 percent increase over last year.

The continued sales growth of GAC Motor can be attributed to the ever-increasing demand for its vehicles. Notably, the all-new GS3 Emzoom and the 7-seater GS8 SUV and have been driving this surge in sales.

The GS3 Emzoom continued to be in high demand, with year-to-date sales of 423 units since only launching four months ago. The trendy and intelligent SUV is the perfect travel companion for today’s generation who are always on the go, and carries GAC Motor’s bold and futuristic design language, pioneering unique style, advanced technology, and an efficient drivetrain.

The class-defining GS8 SUV delivered year-to-date sales of 378 units, and is one of GAC Motor’s most successful nameplates, bringing prestige to premium buyers. The brand’s flagship SUV combines form and function with its bold and futuristic design style, surging power and pioneering smart configurations.

The Emkoo and Empow also continue to attract buyers looking for the perfect blend of technology and performance. With their sleek designs and advanced features, these models offer a compelling combination of cutting-edge innovation and impressive power. In October, the Emkoo recorded a total of 124 units sold, while the Empow followed closely with 118 units sold, demonstrating the strong demand for both of these exceptional products in the GAC Motor lineup.

These vehicles consistently exemplify GAC Motor’s four key pillars of meticulous craftsmanship, exceptional product quality and services, cutting-edge technology, and engineering excellence backed by a robust supply chain supported by renowned global brands.

“Our continuous success in retail sales has propelled GAC Motor to unparalleled heights, affirming the growing number of Filipinos who appreciate and recognize the unmatched value that our vehicles offer,” said Franz Decloedt, Brand Head of GAC Motor.

Decloedt added, “We move closer to our target of breaking 2,000 units by year-end, and this achievement bolsters our commitment and confidence in providing our customers with the utmost experience, encompassing exceptional vehicles, top-notch after-sales service, and enhanced accessibility through an expanded network of dealers.”

On track with its plans to expand its dealer network to 20 locations by year-end, GAC Motor recently celebrated the formal inauguration of GAC Cainta last October 11, which was attended by visiting executives from Astara and GAC International.

Decloedt emphasized, “Our unstoppable growth is complemented by our rapid dealer network expansion, made possible through earnest collaboration with both our existing and new dealer partners who share our unwavering vision and confidence in the GAC brand.”

GAC Motor showrooms and service facilities are located in key cities nationwide, specifically Alabang, Batangas, Bacolod, Bacoor, Butuan, Cainta, Cebu, Davao, Iloilo, Lipa, Makati, Manila Bay, New Manila, Pampanga, Pasig, Quezon Avenue, and Tarlac. Soon to open are facilities in Cagayan de Bro, General Santos, and Marilao.


  1. The new strategy of aggressive marketing coupled with the release of new models, facelifted models, and good performance, it worked for GAC.. GS8 seems expensive specially for a new brand in Ph, but you might be getting so much more than what you actually pay for..
    And I desire that Empow.. Now I hope they wont get into any speed bump going forward like Geely had.. Because these Chinese brands are helping improve the competition in Ph car market..

  2. Congratulations GAC Astara Philippines 👏👏

  3. Let's see if they will reach their 2,000 unit target for 2023.

  4. This GAC is the most improved player Car brand in the local market today. A way way better strategic marketing campaign against the TCCi of Chevrolet and Ayala's both for Volkswagen and Kia. Soon GAC will make it to the top10 charts volume sellers. A very promising company Astara.

  5. Kung nauna lang yang emzoom lumabas, malabo yang 100+ units ng emkoo.
