I live in south-east queensland and the other day i flicking through a small local newspaper when i got several pages in and spotted a 1/2 page ad for the VY commodore. The ad stated the following:
HOLDEN COMMODORE- AUSTRALIA'S NO. 1
New Model VY Commodore Sales- 6095
New Model BA Falcon Sales- 3662
It's results that count- we'll let the sales
figures do the talking.
Australia's most influential motor magazine had this
to report about Commodore: "Right now, Holden is
indisputably the hottest act in the Australian car
business. The lion badge brand is more popular
than in any time in its long history and Commodore
is utterly dominant in the large car segment with
a share nearing 50%" - Wheels, October 2002
WE INVITE YOU TO TEST DRIVE THE NEW HOLDEN
COMMODORE TODAY -- DISCOVER WHY IT'S BEEN
FAR AND AWAY AUSTRALIA'S BEST SELLER FOR 61
MONTHS -- THATS OVER 5 YEARS!
Now, what annoys me about this is that they clearly state that 6095 VY's have been sold against 3662 BA's.
I thought that those figure were for general Commodore and Falcon sales which includes run-out VXII and AUIII models???
If i am incorrect than i apologise to Holden for claiming these numbers, but i am sure i remember reading that we wouldnt get a clear indication of the true VY/BA sales figures until January/February.
However, one thing that amuses me regarding this ad is the invitation to test drive the VY. If i was holden i wouldnt be doing that, 'cos after they have driven a BA, the VY is going to seem pretty ordinary, hehe!
Sorry for not being able to post a picture of the ad in question but i dont have a scanner.
