UD Trucks has re-written its record books with the biggest retail sales month in the company's history.
Throughout the month of June, a total of 132 units were sold through the Australian dealer network, eclipsing the previous best of 131 units from March 2006.
President of UD Trucks Region Oceania, John Bushell, says that the outstanding result is due to strong end of financial year spending in the transport sector, coupled with fantastic savings on run-out Euro 4 stock.
"With the new Euro 5 Condor medium duty and Quon heavy duty series trucks set for an imminent arrival, we couldn't be happier with our end of June result," Bushell said.
"The Euro 4 range has served the company and our clients well over a long period of time, but we are very excited to see our new range reach Australian shores.
"We have been listening to what our customers want, with the Condor series featuring an all-new cab and engine, while still offering a wide range of chassis and gearbox options.
"The all-new ECO Fleet engine in the Condor series is breaking ground for Japanese truck manufacturers, by utilising Ad-Blue technology to adhere to the strict new emissions standards.
"Highlights of the changes across the range include the standard fitment of SRS driver's side airbags, an all-new touch screen multimedia-navigation system, and an improved driver's seat, which is the centre piece of the safer, more ergonomic cabin layout."
The 132 UD Trucks sold in June bring the year-to-date total up to 477 units, with 114 of the June sales being shared between the MK and PK models.
