Australia 2017. Auto sales at the third all time record in a string

Australian Autos Market

Australian Autos Market ended the 2017 with the third all time record in a row, keeping the steady and moderately positive path. Toyota dominated the market with 18.5% of share while Kia was the star of the year, improving sales by 28%.

Australian economic growth moderated in the third quarter according to recent figures, but remained solid. Buoyant fixed investment thanks to rosy business sentiment was partially offset by sluggish private consumption, with consumers saddled by high debt and meager wage growth. However, figures for Q4 are largely positive; in November, businesses were optimistic and the unemployment rate remained at a multi-year low, while retail sales picked up in October. In addition, consumer sentiment rose back into positive territory in December, likely due in part to the strong labor market.

Tesla switched on the world’s biggest lithium-ion battery on December 1st, in time to feed Australia’s shaky power grid for the first day of summer, meeting a promise by Elon Musk to build it in 100 days or give it free. This happens just one month after the last automotive plant in the country was closed, by GM near Melbourne, and represent an ideal switch between the past and the future.

Australian vehicles market continues its expansion, moderate, by grade, but endless. In the last five years annual car passenger’s sales grew from 1.072.000 in 2012 up over 100k in the last year, with a steady positive trend. Indeed, according to data released by the Minister of Transportation and Infrastructures, in the 2017 the total vehicles industry scored again the All Time Record, the third in a row, with a moderate gain over the previous year, Indeed final sales have been 1.189.138.
