Announcing its sales highest ever annual sales in 2016 in 14 years, SsangYong Motor revealed that the SsangYong Tivoli has reached the 100,000 unit sales milestone in South Korea. The company sold 155,844 vehicles in its home market last year, 85,821 units of which were Tivolis.
The SsangYong Tivoli's sales figure crossed the 100,000 mark on last month. The Tivoli has ranked number 1 in sales in the compact SUV segment in the country since its launch in January 2015. It reached the 100,000 mark in the fastest time for any SsangYong model - just 23 months.
As for the export markets, the SsangYong Tivoli saw a growth of 54.7% over 2015, thanks to its huge popularity in Europe, Central and South America and Iran. It contributed to the company's overall exports’ growth of 15.9% (y-o-y). Sales were helped by the launch of the 'long body' Tivoli Air variant last year in Korea and the subsequent launch of the Tivoli diesel after its introduction.
