Lincoln Middle East says it has continued its surge in summer sales into September.
In a statement, the company said the luxury marque’s third quarter numbers for new vehicle sales exceeded those of last year’s Q3 by an “impressive” 63%.
It added that September’s sales in isolation saw an increase of a 107%.
Describing those results as remarkable, Lincoln said it was the brand’s best month in the region for four years: “Buoyed by the ever-growing demand for Lincoln’s flagship Navigator SUV. Navigator, which has been setting benchmarks in quality for over two decades, continues to be one of Lincoln’s greatest success stories.”
Aviator and Corsair notched up record-setting months for sales earlier this year and continue to be in high demand across the GCC, said Lincoln.
The three-row, premium large utility vehicle Aviator came a close second behind Navigator in September sales figures.
Sales for June, July, and August, were up 36%, 52%, and 31% respectively over the same periods last year with Lincoln posting 10% growth in 2020 so far “despite the effects of lockdown earlier in the year”.
“We are very proud of the teams in our distributor partners who work tirelessly to make these impressive results possible; our brand registered double digit growth in most of Lincoln’s GCC markets for September” said Sami Malkawi, sales and ownership experience director, Lincoln Direct Markets.
“Lincoln’s full portfolio of Luxury SUVs, coupled with the Lincoln Way ownership experience, continue to take the brand to new highs in the region, and contributes to the growing popularity and customer confidence in our brand.”
