Seat fleet sales soar in record September

Seat’s fleet sales operation is celebrating an outstanding doubling of its September registrations as the Spanish brand closes in on its goal of becoming a fleet manufacturer of choice.

With September’s sales now accounted for, and the official Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders’ (SMMT) figures published, Seat has seen its share of the hard-fought fleet market soar to a record 2.5% and 3,830 sales.

That’s a 100.7% increase on September 2010 which was itself a very strong month for the Spanish car maker.

The sales surge underlines the success of Seat’s drive to become a significant force in the UK fleet market. The strategy to become a fleet manufacturer of choice was launched in late 2009.

Seat UK national fleet sales manager Sally Livingstone-Dennis said: “The initiatives we have put in place over the past couple of years – investments in both people and systems – are now bearing fruit and I’m convinced that this successful performance will continue.”
