Australia Vehicles Sales in May 2016 moderately up while political elections are incumbent. Land Rover shines while Fiat fell down again. The Toyota Corolla took over the Ford Ranger for the third step of the podium.

Market Outlook

The upcoming 2 July double-dissolution election, in which all seats in both chambers are contested, is turning into a neck-to-neck race between the ruling Liberal-National coalition and the opposition Labor Party. The trend in polls favors the Labor Party, which is benefitting from the unpopular budget presented by the Turnbull administration in early May.

However, recent dynamics in business and consumer confidence suggest that Australians are unperturbed by the political uncertainty ahead of the elections, which supports a stable outlook for the Australian economy.

That’s almost positive for the automotive sector, running on high borders since years and heavy subject to any negative influence coming from external factors.

Indeed May, according to data released by the FCAI, the Federation of Australian Car Manufacturers, the vehicles sold had been 87.571, up 3.6%.

Year to Date sales volume increased by 3.3% with 371.021 registrations, compared to the same period of the previous year.
