Wellhouse predicts global growth after exporting first camper to Sweden
Wellhouse Leisure has exported one of its award-winning Hyundai campervans to Sweden and is receiving interest from around the world.
With the help of UKTI in the UK and Sweden, Wellhouse has been working with a Swedish dealer for a few months as the conversion had to be reversed for the left hand drive market.
"If all goes well, Sweden are talking of ordering 50-100 campers a year, and with worldwide interest, we expect turnover and the number of campers we build to almost double in 2012. This is great news for all of us and shows that you can export in the UK motorhome industry.”
Wellhouse has given its website a global feel by translating the homepage into 10 different language and export vehicles will bear the new Wellhouse logo and ‘Made in Huddersfield’ badge.
Wellhouse has also introduced a cleaner, greener new addition to the Hyundai i800 line-up: a Euro 5 compliant model with 6-speed manual transmission.
Fuel economy improves by 13.6 per cent on the combined cycle with a 12.4 per cent reduction in CO2 emissions compared to the outgoing Euro 4 170PS manual version.
The new version also offers a braked towing capacity of 2,300kgs - 800kgs more than the automatic variant. The price increases from £35,000 to £36,000.
