Record UK sales for SEAT


Can you hear the sound of Champagne bottles popping in Milton Keynes? (Surely Cava? -Ed)

We’re still six weeks off New Year – but SEAT is nevertheless celebrating record annual sales figures for the fifth year running.

Yesterday morning the brand registered its 38,871th car of the year – beating last year’s total of 38,798 cars.

This comes as no surprise to us here at MR – our shapely Leon SC FR long termer is gaining a lot of fans here at MR Towers.

And October 2013 too has been a landmark month for SEAT, with 2903 registrations making it the company’s best October ever. Retail sales alone were up by 34% compared to October 2012’s.

SEAT UK Director Neil Williamson says: “In a competitive marketplace it’s a testament to both the quality of our cars and the effort of our dealerships that we’ve broken our annual sales record already. A brilliant team effort.

“What’s most pleasing is that we’ve achieved much of this success in the showrooms: our year-to-date retail sales have gone up by almost a third.

“We’ve put a lot of focus on getting happy customers into great cars via an outstanding dealership experience.”

Now the record’s been beaten though, just how many cars can SEAT sell in a year? We’ve got six weeks to find out.
