The company blamed “significant change globally and locally”, which despite implementing “a number of alternative strategies to try to sustain and improve the business”, for the ultimate demise of the struggling Holden brand. hrough its proud 160-year history, Holden has not only made cars, it has been a powerful driver of the industrialisation and advancement of Australia and New Zealand.

Holden will also provide servicing and spare parts for at least 10 years, through national aftersales networks in Australia and New Zealand.
