GAC Motor Philipines today announced a remarkable 7-month streak of record sales performance, achieving an impressive 276% year-over-year growth, selling a total of 825 units in this period. This announcement was made in conjunction with the local debut of the new GAC GS8 4WD variant.
The announcement was made by Franz Decloedt, Marketing Director of Astara Philippines, at the GAC Discovery Drive Fest, a three-day mall display and customer test drive event at the Glorietta 2, Ayala Center, Makati City. Running until the 27th of August 2023, the event allows customers to experience firsthand the innovation, quality, and craftsmanship that GAC Motor vehicles are renowned for.
“We are elated to celebrate our exceptional 7-month streak in sales performance, which is a testament to our team’s hard work, innovation, and the trust our customers have in us. Our brand’s dedication to delivering cutting-edge vehicles that cater to the evolving needs and preferences of our Filipino customers has been the driving force behind this impressive sales trajectory,” Decloedt said.
Raoul Picello, managing director of Astara Philippines, formally opened the 3-day event with a ribbon-cutting ceremony in the presence of special guests.
“I extend my heartfelt gratitude to everyone who has played a role in our success story – our customers who have chosen to drive with us, our partners who have supported our endeavors, and our dedicated team members who have worked tirelessly to make this all possible,” shared Picello.
To mark this momentous achievement and continue the momentum, GAC Motor gave a preview of the all-new GS8 4WD 7-seater SUV at the GAC Discovery Drive Fest. This SUV was initially offered in 2WD, but now, the GS8 will now come in a 4WD option as a response to GAC Motor’s discerning customers who want a perfectly capable premium SUV for occasional off-road trips.
“The GS8 has had tremendous success since being launched in the Philippines and continues to be one of our best-selling nameplates. It is masterfully designed to exude confidence on the road and is perfect for customers seeking distinction and refinement in their SUV,” added Decloedt.
On top of the new 4WD system, this variant of the GS8 also gets added features. There are additional drive modes for various terrains, a 10-speaker Alpine Sound System, and a ventilated front central armrest compartment. This variant of the GS8 will be sold at an introductory price of P2,548,000.
Bookings for the new GS8 4WD SUV are ongoing at all GAC Motor dealerships nationwide. All units come with a five-year warranty and customer deliveries will begin very soon.
