VE Commodore: Best Fleet forward

Fleet fleet: Holden is banking on strong fleet sales for its VE Commodore.

Holden says fleet customers are keen on the VE Commodore

20 Jul 2006

"It all depends who you talk to," Mr Mooney said. "I can tell you that we have had a lot of the fleet customers in to look at the car, and they are very excited about the car.

"I think the residuals on this car will be good, because we’re back to two shifts on our plant. And we’re not building as many. And, frankly, we have strong overseas demand. So it is one of those things we are going to work hard on – managing residual values on this car. And not try to put too many cars on to the market." Volume needed
OF COURSE, all of this depends on sales volume. How much does GMH need to payback a billion? "We want to keep our plant full – which is a two-shift plant – which runs between, in straight time, probably 135,000, 145,000 (per annum)," Mr Mooney said. “But we’ve got a lot of export flexibility. I feel confident we can keep our plant full."
