Commodore too good by half The 3787 new Commodores sold last month was nearly 10 per cent up on October last year By STUART INNES THE Holden Commodore has accelerated ahead in new-car sales to again clearly be the top-selling model in the nation and now hold more than half the large-car market. The 3787 new Commodores sold last month was nearly 10 per cent up on October last year while Australian-made large car rivals Ford Falcon (2258 sales) was more than 20 per cent down and Toyota Aurion (just 785 sales) a whopping 45 per cent down from October last year. Vfacts figures issued this week by the Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries show that Holden Commodore is the only one of the three leading Australianmade cars to do better in yearto-date sales compared with last year. It meant Commodore accounted for just over half (51 per cent) of the large-car market, Holdens sales and marketing executive director John Elsworth said. The companys Cruze presently is an imported model and again figured in the top-10 selling cars in Australia last month. Next year will be an excit ing time for Holden, Mr Elsworth said. Our Australian-made lineup will grow next year to include the Cruze sedan and hatchback, making Cruze the only Australian-built small car when its starts to roll off the production line along side Commodore in 2011. The FCAI said total October new-vehicle sales were 80,925, on par with the same month last year, a drop in passenger car sales offset by a rise in demand for SUVs. The year-to-date total of 861,645 new vehicles is 13 per cent up on the first 10 months last year and heading for a one-million tally for this calendar year. Toyota easily remains most popular brand, its 16,329 sales last month 60 per cent greater than any other brand. It was helped by perennial favourites HiLux and Corolla being second and third to Commodore in the October sales figures. Toyota is now positioned to finish the year with more than 200,000 sales a level never achieved by any other car company in Australia, Toyota sales and marketing executive director David Buttner said.
