With restrictions eased across Australia, the new car market is starting to show glimpses of recovery
The new car market continues to be stable in Australia, although sales in the industry have fallen for the 31st month in a row.
The light-duty car market was a major factor stopping the sales slump, with light commercials claiming 23 companies 6 percent of the total market in October – a massive 116 percent increase compared to October 2019
In fact, of the five best-selling cars in the country for October, four were cars familiar to all of us here in 4X4 HQ: the Ford Ranger, Toyota Hilux, Toyota Land Cruiser and Toyota Prado – rounding off the top five was another Toyota, the RAV4
– FCAI CEO Tony Weber said the green shoots we are seeing in October give us great hope that we may start to see more recovery over the coming months
â ?? Nationwide, the state of industrial operations is returning to normal with the relaxation of COVID-19 restrictions In addition, government initiatives such as constructive budgeting that have included immediate asset write-offs, along with more accessible financing for clients, are also serving as a welcome catalyst for the industry.
Not surprisingly, the Ford Ranger and Toyota Hilux remain the most popular four-wheel drive engines for the Australian buyer, selling 3,808 and 3,406 units respectively in October
Toyota Prado was the biggest mover for the month, with sales up 1,387 units per month. Toyota converted a total of 2,207 units compared to 820 in September, with a big jump in sales as the Prado saw pressure on the 4×4 sales platform for October.
The new D-MAX 4×4 also showed growth after reaching native soil in September IUA sold a total of 1,330 units in October, up from 856 units in September
And in news that will not shock anyone, Toyota remains the dominant brand in total car sales, with a score of 19This month’s 505 is behind Toyota on the charts as Mazda (7457) and Hyundai (5,951).
With restrictions further easing, particularly in Victoria, we expect new sales to continue to be boosted as we enter 2021
