United Motors H1 sales jump 80pc
Riyadh, August 9, 2012
United Motors Company (UMC), the sole distributor for Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and Ram vehicles in Saudi Arabia, has posted sales of 4,720 vehicles in the first half of the year, marking a year-on-year growth of 80 per cent.
“That’s a year on year increase of 2,126 vehicles against the first half of 2011,” explained Paul Outhwaite, UMC’s chief operations officer.
“This clearly demonstrates that the combination of UMC’s world-class customer service and the exciting, high quality Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep and Ram ranges are attracting - and significantly, retaining - more and more customers. We’re delighted to have achieved these results, and I’m incredibly proud of the team performance that has yet again taken us to new heights.”
“Today, through our world-class network, we offer a comprehensive range of services, from new car sales - cash, leasing and installment-based - to used cars and trade-ins,” Outhwaite continued.
“At the same time, our after sales service centers have been expanded to handle the rapidly increasing number of customers, while other new initiatives such as our Customer Satisfaction Department have been put in place to monitor and continually enhance customer service and satisfaction levels throughout all of our operations, beginning with the vehicle purchase process and continuing through to after sales.
“We offer private, fleet, government and car rental customers long-term reliability, reduced cost of ownership, greater fuel efficiency, uncompromised performance, ongoing advances in safety and technology plus ever-better capability and functionality, all supported by comprehensive after-sales back up,” he added.
“Having 11 vehicles named IIHS Top Safety Picks, plus countless prestigious international and regional awards for capability, build quality and exterior/interior design and widespread recognition of the reliability of our products really illustrates our commitment to design excellence, engineering quality, safety and security across all of our vehicle brands and segments,” added Outhwaite.
“Everyone agrees that the vehicles Chrysler Group is building right now have the best reliability in its history, and as the ongoing product transformation continues, even more new technology and capability will be built into our vehicles,” he concluded. – TradeArabia News Service
