Strongest New Vehicles Since 1985

David Crawford, Chief Executive Officer of the Motor Industry Association says “July new motor vehicle sales are the strongest in 29 years, continuing the strong trend of the last 18 months.”

“July sales of 10,313 new passenger and commercial vehicles is up 10% on July 2013 and 13% year to date (8,594 units) on this time last year. Registrations of 3,242 new commercial vehicles for the month of July reflects continued strong demand, being the strongest July sales since the MIA began collecting records for commercial vehicles in 1981” says Mr Crawford.

There were 7,071 new passenger vehicles sold during July, up 303 units (4.5%) on July 2013.

Year to date registrations of passenger vehicles are 4,853 units (10.4%) ahead of 2013.

Commercial vehicle registrations of 3,242 units were up 610 units (23%) on July 2013. Year to date registrations of commercial vehicles are 3,744 units (21.5%) ahead of July 2013,

reflecting a continued strong market for commercial vehicles.

Toyota was the overall market leader for the month of July with 16% market share (1,665 units) with Ford second on 12% (1,210 units) and Holden third with 11% (1,157 units).

Toyota was the passenger car market leader for the month of July with 15% share (1030 units), with Holden second on 11% (805 units) and Ford third also with 9% (602 units).

Toyota was also the commercial vehicle market leader with 20% share (635 units) closely followed by Ford at 19% (608 units) and Holden third at 11% (352 units).

The Toyota Corolla was once again the top selling passenger model with 6% market share (428 units), followed by the Holden Commodore on 4% (304 units) and the Honda Jazz also on 4% (302 units).

The Ford Ranger regained its position as the monthly top selling commercial model for July with 537 units sold (17% market share). The Toyota Hilux was the second best seller with 13% market share (411 units). This was followed by the Nissan Navara at 10% (332 units).

Year to date the Toyota Hilux hangs onto the lead as the top selling commercial model with 16% market share (3,326 units) ever so closely followed by the Ford Ranger, also with 16% market share (3,294 units).
