Holden Special Vehicles today announced October 2006 as a record month for the high performance car company. More than 490 retail deliveries were registered in Australia and New Zealand in October, well above the previous monthly record of 436 (December 2004).

Managing Director Phil Harding said the result was a vote of confidence in HSV following a fantastic E series launch and the excellent performance of the exclusive HSV dealer network.

“With 491 retail deliveries in October, we have sold 55 more vehicles than our next best month ever”, Phil Harding said.

“Demand is set to continue based on incoming orders. October was also a record month for production, with 515 cars dispatched to dealers. We have increased production by 50% to keep pace with demand".

“Year to date deliveries now stand at 2632. Our performance this year is exactly to plan, with an orderly run down of production and the sale of outgoing models, followed by a rapid and controlled ramp up of the exciting new E Series”, Harding said.

Mr Harding said HSV was receiving tremendous traffic through dealerships from both its loyal customer base and new buyers.

“I am particularly pleased with the level of interest from ‘Euro’ owners”, Harding said.

“We’re seeing owners of premium European models switching across to the E series based on the extraordinary value, level of performance and high-end specifications across all three vehicles”.

Phil Harding said HSV were continuing to show real leadership in the high performance niche vehicle segment with solid sales performances year after year, setting the standard for performance, technology and value.

“This early local success gives us great confidence for the overseas export potential of both the E series and other vehicle opportunities”, Harding said.
