GEELY’S Coolray has emerged as top-selling among 5-seater sub-compact crossovers this June with 154 units sold. This despite the recession-induced by the COVID-19 pandemic that has also deflated the Philippine automotive market since March.
“This is definitely a very positive development as every auto brand try to bounce back during this post-ECQ period,” Mikihisa Takayama, Sojitz G Auto Philippines (SGAP) President & CEO said. SGAP is the official distributor of Geely automobiles in the country.
The SGAP executive said that his company’s successful selling campaign can be one indicator of the revival of the automotive industry. Geely PH performance shows how it has “undoubtedly bounced back from crisis this June.”
“We are very delighted of this outcome since it is mainly driven by one model, the Coolray and only one showroom located in North Edsa,” Takayama added.
Based on the latest industry reports, Geely PH ranks 10th in the month of June with 184 units combined sales of Coolray and the recently launched Azkarra, representing a 160% jump from its 70 units sales record in May. This is the brand’s highest monthly sales record since January of this year. For the first half of 2020, it has sold a total of 549 units.
“We expect Geely sales to improve further as we open new dealership outlets and further complement our product line up this year,” Takayama concluded.
