Pretoria - New-vehicle sales in South Africa took a slight upturn in June, and at 46 678 units recorded a three percent increase over sales figures for June 2017. This is also well above the 42 950 sales seen in May 2018.
On the new-vehicle sales charts, the Toyota Hilux took its customary place as not only SA’s best-selling bakkie but the overall top performer in June, with the rival Ford Ranger in second place. The Nissan NP200, now without competition in the half-ton bakkie class after the demise of the Chevrolet Ute, was the country’s fourth best-selling vehicle.
The best-selling passenger car was VW’s Polo Vivo ahead of its newer cousin, the VW Polo.
Below we’ve listed the 10 best sellers in eight of the key segments. Keep in mind that Mercedes-Benz vehicles are excluded from the list as the company does not report individual sales figures.
