Daihatsu showrooms running out of stock (UK)

Daihatsu customers are finding it ever more difficult to find a car of their choice because dealers are running out of stock.

IM Group, the company that imports Daihatsu’s, hasn't brought in any new cars since last Summer because of the poor exchange rate between the Pound and the Yen. An IM spokesman admitted that numbers of new Daihatsu’s in the UK 'are limited'. However, a Daihatsu dealer told a mystery shopper: 'We are out of new Daihatsu’s, as are most dealers in the UK. The manufacturer hasn't exported any new cars to the UK for a while and will not be doing so for the foreseeable future.'

According to the latest figures from the SMMT, Daihatsu sold 22 cars in January, compared with 97 in same period 12 months earlier. Daihatsu has around 100 dealers in the UK and currently sells the Materia, Sirion, Copen convertible and Terios 4x4.
