Holden VF Commodore Reaches 50,000 Milestone


Recommended Posts

The clock may be ticking on Holden’s Australian manufacturing operations, but that doesn’t appear to have stalled interest in the brand's best-selling model.

This week, the VF Commodore has reached a key milestone, with the 50,000th body rolling off the production line at Elizabeth, South Australia.

The landmark moment comes just 10 months on from the VF's launch, and while the company has been mired in controversy since announcing a 2017 end for local production, Holden’s Richard Phillips believes there’s reason to be proud in the achievement.

"The VF is quite simply the best quality car Holden has ever built, and to see the 50,000th one roll off the line is a milestone everyone is very proud of," Phillips said.

"VF delivers more advanced-technology features than any vehicle in Australian automotive history - making it the most technologically advanced car ever created in Australia."

And, while the bulk of orders for the VF range have been from within the Australian market, around 10 percent of production has been devoted to overseas orders: Chevrolet SS in the US, and Chevrolet Lumina in the Middle East.

Cool to see, sorry to have it come at the last minute, to little to late and as we all know, the high cost of manufacturing is not helping them down under.
