Group proceeding (class action) brought by a Holden dealership for itself and on the behalf of 10 others who it says entered agreements with General Motors Holden Australia NSC Pty Ltd (Holden) for the sale of new Holden branded vehicles.
The claim alleges that in 2018 Holden entered into contracts with the group members by which Holden would provide new Holden branded vehicles for a period of five years. Holden’s parent company subsequently announced the retirement of the Holden brand, with the last Holden vehicle manufactured in March 2020. The plaintiff says that since that date it and the group members have been unable to place further orders with Holden, and that by August 2020 Holden had ceased supplying any new Holden vehicles to the group members.
The plaintiff claims damages for breach of what they say are contracts requiring the provision of new Holden vehicles to each group member for each contract’s entire 5 year term.
