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.
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
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.
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.
