August returned another poor month of sales for the Australian automotive sector.
Sales of SUVs and commercial vehicles have seen figures for August this year up by 4.6% against the same month in 2015.
July new car sales suggest the country is heading for another record-breaking year with current sales up 2.8% on the same period last year.
Back in 2007 the Australian new cars industry passed the magic one million sales, and in 2015 another record was set. But is that growth, or keeping pace?
Australian new car sales hit 98,639 vehicles in November, pushing new vehicle sales to 1,055,792 with one month still left in the year.
Australian new car sales rose 3.4% in October with 94,321 new passenger cars, SUVs and commercial vehicles finding driveways to call home.
