New vehicle sales nose dive in April

03.05.2017

New vehicle sales slumped to its biggest decline of the year in April so far, with the National Association of Automobile Manufacturers of South Africa (NAAMSA) attributing it to number of public holidays experienced during the month.

Aggregate total domestic sales for April dropped by a significant 13.4% from 40 348 to 34 956 units, while exports recorded one of its sharpest declines to date by falling 25.5% from 32 832 to 24 449.

Individual segments were also down with new passenger vehicle sales dropping 13.7% from 26 012 to 22 452, and light commercial vehicles by 13.3% from 12 217 to 10 592. After posting strong gains last month, the market for medium and heavy duty commercial vehicles fell by 3.8% and 12.1% respectively.
