Australia domestic cars market in October 2016 Nissan-titan-2016

Australia domestic cars market in October was steady up, sustained by the positive business confidence. Hyundai and Nissan gained one spot while the Toyota Hilux was back on top.

Market Outlook

Business confidence softened in October while remaining in positive territory, as did consumer confidence in November, in large part due to heightened global uncertainty in the lead up to the U.S. presidential election. In late October, S&P Global Ratings sounded a gloomy note by putting a number of banks on negative watch because of their exposure to Australia’s rapidly overheating housing market.

The domestic cars market in October kept the moderate pace, scoring the third y.o.y. growth in a string.

According to data released by the FCAI, the Federation of Australian Car Manufacturers, the vehicles sold last month had been 93.357, +1.3%. Year to date figures had been 976.516, up 2.3%
