Australia Auto 2016 Hit the New All Time Record sales again, for the second year in a row despite the economic environment seems deteriorating with low data referred to the second half.

Market Outlook

Australia’s string of weak quarterly economic expansions came to an abrupt end in the third quarter, confounding analysts who had expected only a mild slowdown. The labor market remained somewhat soft at the onset of Q4 but shed part-time positions while creating new full-time positions, suggesting a firmer recovery to close the year. At the same time, retail sales continued to grow at a strong clip in October, albeit slightly below September’s mark.

According to data released by the FCAI, the Federation of Australian Car Manufacturers, new car passenger’s in December had been 197.327, up 5.8%, ending the 2016 at 1.173.335 sales (+2.2%) hitting the new all time record for the second year in a row.

However, due to the recovery of Spanish market, Australia has lost one place in the global ranking and now stands for 15th.
