More than half of Holden’s dealer network have taken down their iconic signs and it now seems the brand is close to clearing all its cars, with just 165 vehicles reported as sold last month – and fewer than 300 estimated as remaining in the network.
Perhaps some consolation for diehard Holden fans, the Commodore was the brand’s biggest selling nameplate in its final days, due in part to a fleet order for NSW Police general duties vehicles.
Official figures released today by the Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries (FCAI) show Holden reported 165 cars as soldin October 2020 compared to 522 deliveries in September and 555 in August.
Holden dealers estimate there could be fewer than 300 cars remaining across the national network, as General Motors had asked for all cars to at least be declared or reported as sold two months ago.
The detailed data below shows the following sales results for Holden, three years after it closed its production line in Elizabeth on the outskirts of Adelaide.
