2009-07-06 07:59

Since launch in 2004 the second-generation Corsa Utility has established itself as the dominant player in the half-ton pick-up segment of the South African vehicle market.

Last month the Corsa bakkie achieved a significant milestone as it passed through the 100 000 unit sales threshold to record a total of 100 621 sales since introduction.

With average sales of just under 1 800 units a month over the period the Corsa Utility is not just the clear class leader, but the second most popular light commercial vehicle in the market since introduction.

Locally produced at the GMSA facility in Port Elizabeth, the Corsa bakkie has also won the industry benchmark for quality. The Corsa Ute has achieved the top occalde – a gold award for quality, during both the Synovate 2007 and 2008 independent Quality Survey, for best quality ½ ton bakkie.
