Australia New Vehicle Sales in October Up From Last Year

95,763 new vehicles were sold in October in Australia, according to The Australian Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries’ VFACTS report. It’s a 2.6 percent increase compared to the same month last year. The demand in the commercial sector was the reason for the increase.

The demand for commercial vehicles still continue to hike with the light sector showing a considerable 18.5 percent increase. Sales for heavy vehicles increased to 13.7 percent. Sales for passenger cars are still down however, falling to 3.8 percent this month. Sales for sports utility vehicles jumped to 1.2 percent after a decline last month.

Asian cars still reign supreme when it comes to sales and demand. Toyota Motor Corp is still in first place with an expanded share of 18.6 percent of the overall market. Coming in at a far second is Hyundai Motor with 9.2 percent.

On third sport is Mazda Motor Corp with 8.4 percent while General Motors’ Holden unit took 8.1 percent. Ford had 6.0 percent while Mitsubishi took 5.8 percent.
