Sales for SEAT on the rise 13.7% growth

Author: Sam Allibone


From January to October 2018, SEAT have seen a 13.7% increase in the number of vehicles sold worldwide.

449,000 vehicles have been sold by the manufacturer in 2018 to date, a significant increase from 395,100 in the same period of 2017. This 13.7% increase is the best so far in the history of SEAT.

October deliveries did, however, fall 16.8% to 33,400 units – an expected decrease given the implementation of WLTP regulations from September 2018. Prior to this, July and August saw a 40% rise in sales, most likely an attempt by consumers to avoid the new regulations. SEAT believes the volumes should stabilise through November, putting them back on track.

Germans have bought the highest number of vehicles from the manufacturer, weighing in at 98,000 units. Spain follows a close second with 93,300, whilst the UK (54,700), France (26,000) and Italy (17,600) make up the rest of the top 5 markets. Algeria has also increased the number of units sold from 3,900 in 2017 to 16,800 in 2018 – a very significant rise. 

Wayne Griffiths, Vice-president for Sales and Marketing, said: “SEAT aims to close 2018 with double digit growth for the second year in a row and achieve the highest sales volume in the history of the brand.”
