SA's 50 best selling vehicles - Feb

Comment on this story


IOL mot mar4 Toyota Etios

.

The Toyota Etios continues to gain ground and was the third best-selling vehicle in SA during February.

The latest car sales numbers in from Naamsa imply that vehicle sales growth is slowing.

A grand total of 53 220 vehicles were sold during February, up just 1.59 percent over February last year. It was a brighter picture on the export front, where sales rose by 22.4 percent year-on-year.

Of the local sales front, 85.6 percent of the deals took place through dealers while 6.6 percent of the cake went to the rental industry, 4.0 percent to corporate fleets and 3.8 percent to government.

Naamsa believes that the near term outlook for the industry is reasonably positive, with replacement demand and the low interest rate playing a supportive role, but it cautions that inflationary pressures on the back of a weaker rand would keep the growth rate moderate.

The usual Hilux and Polo Vivo suspects took the top spots on the February sales chart, although Toyota's Etios ousted the VW Polo for third place.

Toyota also led the overall vehicle sales race, with 11 027 units, followed by VW at 9100, Nissan (4703), Ford (4556), GM (4545) and BMW (2423).

Mercedes-Benz sold a total of 1574 vehicles during the month, but it is still not reporting individual figures. As before, Kia and Hyundai have yet to come out of the sales closet.
