VFACTS May - Improvement for Falcon

-Good news for Falcon Ute.
-Better than usual news for Falcon sedan.
-Still bad news for Fairlane.
-Ford dosn't even have a competitor in the Sport segment (Cougar ?).

PS. It's a shame the 200SX is dissappearing, nice car IMO.


LARGE CARS

BOTH Commodore and Falcon had their biggest
selling months for the year during May.
Holden's number one model posted 7399 sales
(up 391 units) while Ford's under-performing AU
Falcon improved by a substantial 1060 units, or
almost 30 per cent, on its April performance to
record 4683 sales.
Falcon Ute sales (1777) were also up about 30
per cent, allowing it to easily account for the
Commodore Ute model (1139 sales, up five per
cent).

PRESTIGE CARS

HOLDEN'S Statesman once again grabbed the
lion's share of the prestige segment, with its 18.3
per cent stake (441 sales) the biggest for the long-wheelbase
model this year. Ford's Fairlane (208) edged ahead of Nissan's
Maxima (180) on year-to-date figures.

SPORTS CARS

THE Holden Monaro juggernaut shows no signs
of slowing, improving nominally (up nine units)
on its April result with 474 sales.
After languishing behind the Monaro and
Holden's other hotshot, the Astra convertible, for
the past four months, Nissan's 200SX recorded
its highest finish since December last year and its
best sales result since August, 2001 – second
place in the segment with 150 sales.

If there is a take up of people buying Falcons now, imagine what is going to happen once Barra hits the market......

Falcon ute was 6th best overall, even outselling Magna!!

...and people said those Lowndes/Ambrose ute ads sucked. I hope they choke on their lunch or something.

The Falcon sedan crawled back, still being beaten by Commodore but not by the 2:1 margin they've been predicting.

Barra is still months away, and the Ford fightback is on! Geoff must be spoting a nice smile today, even if we only managed third place at the Stegbar 400.

Wasn't the Falcon ute nearly double the sales of Commodore ute last time? And now it's "gained 30%"but leaves only 638 in favour of Falcon!

Last time? No, in fact the Commodore ute was coming close to equalling Falcon ute sales.

I can't belive the Fairlane is so close to Nissan Maxima..
Concidering the Maxima is a imported, american, unexciting car. Admittedly the V6 in it is pretty nice like all nissans. I doubt they will replace it with the new Skyline anytime soon if it sells that well.

It does suck that the 200sx is leaving, I guess we will never be getting the 184kw car now. I would imagine the nissan dealers are pretty unhappy about it too.

I think if you took work utes out of the equation, it would be alot more even.

You never see any Commodore work utes getting around, only namcy boys in SS's

Interesting figures, percentage wise.

Holden selling 37% more Commodore sedans than Ford Falcon.
Ford selling 36% more Falcon utes and Holden Commodore ute.

Go the Falcon Ute .


I hope they sell over 20000 this year . The AU ute sales have been increasing at a dramatic rate every year since its release. The more sales the better .
