We are looking forward to further momentum in 2013 driven by our aggressive launch cadence, where approximately 70 per cent of our vehicles will be all-new or significantly refreshed.

Malcolm Gauld, GMSA’s Vice President, Vehicle Sales Service and Marketing said
“The new year has certainly got off to a bumper start with surprisingly high sales. A welcome start to the year but we remain cautious about the sustainability of any high level of growth over the next 11 months. It is our view that growth will be constrained by economic conservatism through the year with demand levelling out and single digit growth the real prospect by year-end.
A key driver of sales in January was increased demand by the vehicle rental industry. Sales to this market channel were up by 51,4% over January 2012 in a marked change in the normal seasonal buying pattern as purchases were brought forward into January. We anticipate that demand in this sector will average out over the coming months”
