Suzuki is scrambling to sell its remaining stock in the U.S. and to a certain extent it seems to be working.
The brand is reporting a 22 percent sales increase in November — the biggest jump it’s seen all year. Suzuki sold 2,224 vehicles compared to 1,822 in the same month last year. After filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy last month, the brand offered incentives to lure buyers — something it will continue this month.
Those include zero percent financing for up to 72 months or rebates ranging from $500 to $2,000.
Despite exiting the U.S. car market, Suzuki will remain, but only to sell motorcycles, ATVs and boat engines. The company’s dealer network will remain to honor warranties, although only as service centers rather than full dealerships.
