7000 New Vehicles On Our Roads In 2013
16 August 2013 - Le Matinal
The sale of new cars fell in April, May and June. However, during the first six months of 3288 cars were sold against 3111 called 'reconditioned' cars. Although the trend is for new cars, it is difficult to predict whether it will be new cars or reconditioned cars that sold in 2013 will be better.
This is mainly with the 1200cc cars arrive to take them out of the game in this category, there is no competition. 1200cc to 1600cc, there is fierce competition for those who import reconditioned cars do not pay the carbon tax.
Which gives a play against the New Car Dealers. There is also the fact that the yen has depreciated recently and reconditioned cars from Japan have experienced a sizeable decline.
By the end of the year, dealers hope to sell about 7 000 7 500 new vehicles but the trend can also be reversed and reconditioned cars can find the odds. For the first five months of the year, Kia has dominated the car market followed by Toyota,Nissan, Hyundai and BMW.
