18.5% growth since January

SEAT closes the best month of May in its history

Martorell, 06 June 2018

  • The carmaker sold close to 50,000 cars, amounting to a 15.5% increase
  • From January to May, SEAT commercialised 238,500 vehicles
  • Algeria, Germany, Spain, the UK and Italy are the highest growth markets
  • SEAT gathers its global dealer network in Berlin next week

SEAT’s strong upward trend in 2018 is being driven by growth in most of the markets where the brand operates, spearheaded by Spain, where the company sold 50,400 cars (+14.3%) from January to May. SEAT leads in vehicle registrations by a large margin compared to the rest of its competitors and the Leon and the Ibiza are the two best-selling models on the market. Sales in Germany grew even more, by 19.3%, reaching 46,100 vehicles, while in the United Kingdom they also went up by more than 19% for a total of 29,400 vehicle deliveries (+19.5%). SEAT sales also increased sharply in France (12,500; +14.8%) and Italy (10,700; +22.5%).

Algeria is the market where SEAT deliveries grew the most, fuelled by the new generation Ibiza which is locally assembled (10,700 vehicles; 1,000 from January to May 2018). Sales of the brand are also moving at a steady pace in countries such as Austria (9,800; +25.7%), Belgium (5,000; +36.5%), Portugal (4,500; +27.6%) and the Netherlands (4,200; +29.8%).

SEAT unveils its future strategy to the global dealer network

SEAT is gathering 2,400 importers and investors from its global distribution network in Berlin from 12 to 14 June. The sessions will serve as the backdrop for SEAT to present its strategy and future plans to its worldwide dealer network, a roadmap influenced this year by the launch of the Tarraco, the new SUV for up to 7 passengers, and the CUPRA Ateca, in the last quarter of 2018.
