Bucking the downward June sales of the U.S. Big Three automotive manufacturers, American Suzuki Motor Corporation (ASMC) Automotive Division posted a 22-percent sales increase last month over June 1999 sales, selling 6,045 units. Strong June sales contributed to a 37-percent increase for the first half of 2000, totaling 31,516 units.

The Grand Vitara continued to sell well, posting 2,455 sales, an 18-percent increase over June 1999. The Vitara, Esteem Sedan and Wagon, and Swift also posted increases for the month and calendar year-to-date.

“High gas prices are making Suzukis an even better buy for new car and SUV buyers,” said American Suzuki Automotive Vice President of Sales Gary Anderson. “We’ve always offered great value in each of our models, and with skyrocketing gasoline prices around the U.S. our increased sales show that more Americans know where to buy both stylish and fuel efficient vehicles.”

Suzuki Motor Corporation founded the Automotive Division of American Suzuki Motor Corporation, located in Brea, California, in 1985. American Suzuki Motor Corp. markets automobiles in the United States through a network of more than 367 dealerships in 49 states.
