Pre-approved finance may assist buyers to secure one of November’s best selling utes, vans, cars and top selling trucks where availability is limited.
Anyone who has been trying to buy a new vehicle in recent times is fully aware of the problems around availability. Supply issues emanating from overseas factories along with the recent shortage of computer chips are just some of the reasons for the limited numbers of new vehicles on the Australian market.
But according to the FCAI
in releasing the November new vehicle sales figures, the supply issues appear to be easing. The monthly figures detail the makes and models which have sold the most units in the period. The truck sales figures have also recently been released which reveal which brands have sold best across all categories.
This data can be useful for buyers trying to quickly identify where stock of new vehicles may be immediately available. But, buyers should be aware that many of the vehicles currently sold have gone to buyers that pre-ordered. That aside, the monthly sales results can be a great place to start when searching for new vehicles. The best sellers may indicate what other buyers have already decided as the best on the market and provide inspiration or new vehicles to consider.
As many vehicles are still in limited supply, securing finance prior to a dealership visit, can be a smart move to ensure you don’t miss out. Having motor vehicle finance or truck finance approved and confirmed places buyers in the ideal position to sign the purchase order on first test drive and expedite delivery.
To assist buyers, we report on the best selling utes, vans, cars and trucks and advise the cheap interest rate finance we can offer on pre-approved finance.
Best Selling Vehicles
Across a wide range of business environments, utes are by far the most popular type of work vehicle. While there are a great selection on the market, the sales results for November reveal the iconic HiLux
from Toyota remains the clear favourite with buyers. In fact, the sales in November for HiLux are surpassing records set nearly 20 years ago for models such as the Commodore and Falcon.
Toyota continued market dominance for best selling brand with Ford second and Mazda third.
In the overall sales covering all the vehicle categories, HiLux topped the sales figures with the Ford Ranger in second position, followed by the Corolla rounding out the top three. Other best selling cars also including the RAV4, MG ZS, Mitsubishi Outlander and the CX-5 from Mazda.
The FCAI notes that the EV and hybrid category continues to show increased sales with the Model Y from Tesla the ninth best selling car for November.
The figures in the highly competitive cab chassis/ute categories are divided into 4x2 and 4x4 and no prizes for guessing which models are the perennial top two. For November, in the 4x2 category, HiLux was well ahead of Ranger with more than double the units sold and Mitsubishi Triton was well back in third. In the 4x4 category the Ranger pipped HiLux by a relatively slim margin with Isuzu’s D-MAX in third.
For those in the market to upgrade their light commercial van, the FCAI includes the sales results for those categories in the monthly VFACTS data also. For vans under 2.5t the sales units were quite small for all models but the Peugeot Partner was the best seller, followed by the VW Caddy and the Renault Kangoo. Units sold in the 2.5t to 3.5t category were more significant. Toyota’s HiAce was the best seller well ahead of the G10 from LDV with Hyundai’s Staria Load in third place.
Truck Sales – November
For those looking to upgrade their truck fleet, the November results may be worth consideration. Truck sales in general have been impressive this year with the market looking like setting a new sales record for 2022. Isuzu was the top selling brand followed by Hino and Fuso then Kenworth and Volvo.
The sales results are broken down by category with the top five given, but not specific models:-
