Ranger outsells Hilux! Check October's top 100

Industry news

October saw a slight shake-up in the bakkie sales war with Ford's Ranger outselling its Toyota Hilux foe, albeit narrowly with 2964 sales versus 2781. Although this could be a once-off, it's worth noting that this is the first month in which the Ranger has outsold the new-generation Hilux, which was launched earlier this year.

It was an otherwise tough month for the rest of the players, and at best we can resort to saying that at least the 10.1 percent year-on-year decline registered (at 48 745 units in total) was not as bad as the 14.3 percent plunge experienced the previous month.

The Ford Ranger outsold its Toyota Hilux rival in October.

Passenger car sales were down 9.5 percent, compared to October last year, while light commercials fell 10.7 percent. The market for medium trucks and buses declined by a worrying 26.8 percent year on year, while the heavies fell 9.2 percent.

The only ray of hope in October were export sales, which gained 10.8 percent, and this momentum is likely to continue for the foreseeable future.

The outlook for the local market remains challenging, however, according to Naamsa, which expects price inflation, high interest rates and relatively low business confidence to continue to dampen the industry's prospects.

However, with the Finance Minister talking of green shoots in the economy and the Reserve Bank's indicator registering positive growth for the first time in three years, there is reason to believe that the tide could be turning, albeit slowly.
