YTD sales increased by 3.7 percent due to record June results.
MISSISSAUGA, ON, July 4, 2012 /CNW/ - Subaru Canada, Inc. (SCI) is pleased to report a new sales record for
the month of June as 2,576 units were sold this month, up 3.7 percent
over the same month last year. Year-to-date sales have also been on the
rise with results up 3.7 percent over the same period in 2011.
It was also a record June for the 2012 Subaru Impreza with sales up 21.6
percent. With seven months of consecutive sales records, the 2012
Impreza is also up an incredible 50.1 percent year to date as Canadians
purchased this fun-to-drive compact car in record numbers.
Strong monthly sales can also partially be attributed to the scorching
introduction of Subaru's brand new rear-wheel-drive sports coupe. The
2013 Subaru BRZ had a tremendous first month of sales as it sold 185
percent over its projected expectations for June.
"We are experiencing amazing growth," said Shiro Ohta, president and CEO
of Subaru Canada, Inc. "Subaru's sales future is very strong and we are
well on our way to making 2012 our best one yet. We have a strong
dealer network that deserves tremendous credit, but we also listen to
our customers and offer the right product with the right marketing.
Collectively, I'm pleased this winning combination is paying off
favourably for us."
