Australian New Car Sales Drop Slightly in February

Official VFACTS data released by the Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries (FCAI) shows that 80,896 passenger cars, SUVs and commercial vehicles were sold in February (down 1.6 per cent or 1,323 vehicles compared to the same month in 2010).

“Sales to private customers increased 4.1 per cent during February to total 39,776 units – outselling business and fleet purchases,” FCAI Chief Executive Andrew McKellar said.

Sales in Queensland that had slumped in January recovered slightly in February and the FCAI expects further growth in Queensland in the coming months as people replace their damaged vehicles.

Toyota was the best performing brand in January selling 14,604 vehicles, followed by Holden with 10,314 and then Mazda for the second month in a row with 7,644.
