Comment on this story


IOL mot jun4 etios

.

The new Toyota Etios sold its way into the top ten despite only having gone on sale later in the month.

Despite all the recessionary cautions, South Africa's new vehicle sales surge continues unabated, with May 2012 seeing a 20.7 percent increase over the same month last year to reach a total of 50 228 units.

Also worth noting is that May 2012 saw the highest daily selling rate achieved since June 2007.

The latest batch of figures release by Naamsa show that the growth was evenly apportioned between passenger cars (20.8 percent) and light commercial vehicles (21.5 percent).

Naamsa stated that factors such as historically low interest rates and the improved financial position of consumers would continue to support South African market, but it does caution that the lower exchange rate would soon have an adverse effect on new vehicle prices.

We've compiled a list of the top 50 sellers of May, but unfortunately it's not the full picture as brands like Hyundai, Kia and Mercedes-Benz are not submitting figures at present, although the latter's sales are reflected in the overall sales figure of 50 228 units.
