Australia 2016. New Record, second in a row

Australia Auto 2016

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.

Competive Arena

In the 2016 Toyota won the competition posting over 209.000 units (+3.1%), while among the highest growths of the year had been scored by LDV, Kia, Ford, Land Rover, Mercedes and Mini. The best performances were reported by Catheram (+189.3%) and Jaguar (+144.3%).

Smart hit the sharpest slowdown, losing 94.6%, followed by other lost at lower level for Great Wall, Chery, Dodge, and Morgan.

At model wise, the Toyota Hilux was the leader with 42.104 sales (+19.7%)  followed by the Toyota Corolla with 40.330 units (-4.1%) and the Hyundai i30 with 37.772 (+16.9%).
