The figures show Australians purchased a total of 10,468 Holden’s during January, with Holden Commodore (3241 units), Holden Captiva (1421 units) and Holden Barina (1379 untis) all selling especially well.

Holden’s Executive Director of Sales and Marketing John Elsworth said overall it was the best monthly sales result since January 2007.

“We’re planning a big year and this is a fantastic start,” Mr Elsworth said.“The sales momentum we saw developing in December last year looks like it has carried over into the new year.“We’ve grown our market share to 14.1% of what is a crowded and competitive market and we’re pleased with how we are tracking across our model range.”
