Nearly 200,000 Customers In The UK
Coinciding almost exactly with the establishment of the new GM Daewoo company, the millionth Daewoo sold in Western Europe has been handed over to a customer in Austria. The car, a Matiz SE, was delivered to a long-standing Austrian customer in Salzburg last Friday 18 October. Daewoo has reached the one million mark in seven years – faster than any other Korean brand. At 330,000 units, the Matiz has been the most successful Daewoo since the Korean brand came to Europe in 1995.
“That is a great achievement,” said Andy Carroll, Managing Director of GM Daewoo UK Ltd. “Daewoo is a successful brand across Europe and the UK market has historically been one of its greatest strengths. With one million cars now sold in Europe and the approach of our 200,000th customer in the UK, I am convinced that we can drive Daewoo to even greater success. With the all-new Kalos coming to our showrooms very soon and other new models and engines around the corner, we will be offering our customers some really exciting products and exceptional value – which is what Daewoo is all about.”Published 15 November 2002
