SEAT UK 2002 Sales Up 8 Per Cent On 2001

SEAT UK new vehicle sales increased by 8.5 per cent during 2002, ending the year with a total of 29,775 registrations. This figure, which is 2320 more units than the total achieved during 2001 comprises 28,810 new cars and 965 Inca vans. SEAT has also grown its share of the UK new car market from 1.08 per cent in 2001 to 1.12 per cent.

A large part of SEAT’s growth during 2002 came from increased popularity of SEAT’s two best-sellers, the Ibiza and Leon. The launch of the new Ibiza in May prompted great interest in this stylish supermini, which ended the year with registrations up by over a thousand units to 11,235. Leon registrations were up 545 units to 9,828, with the range-topping new hot hatch, the Leon Cupra R, being a complete sell out in the final quarter. Other model registrations for the year were, Arosa 2,911, Toledo 1,785, Alhambra 2,973 and Cordoba 78.
