We know you love them and so we have the lat­est bus and coach sup­plier sales data col­lected and recorded for you to sink your teeth into. To know who is who and who’s done what sim­ply check it out!

What goes up must come down, as they say. With de­liv­er­ies creep­ing up to a yearly high of 122 last month, they eased to 90 in Septem­ber, a fig­ure not seen since Fe­bru­ary. Re­as­sur­ingly, how­ever, that ‘low’ is still much health­ier than this time last year, when only 53 de­liv­er­ies were recorded.

The dip in the mar­ket was char­ac­terised by qui­eter months from the two pow­er­houses, Volvo and Scania. The Swedes eased from 55 and 47 to 36 and 20, re­spec­tively. In bet­ter news, en­cour­ag­ingly for MAN its num­bers jumped from three to 11.

It was a sim­i­lar story for the body builders, with Vol­gren record­ing only nearly half its re­cent tal­lies, noted in 26 sales. It was closely fol­lowed by Bustech, whose strong re­cent run has con­tin­ued with 18 builds, not far off Au­gust’s 21. An­other 11 builders shared 46 de­liv­er­ies be­tween them.

Un­like the sharper dips ex­pe­ri­enced by the top OEMs and body builders, Thermo King nearly main­tained its reg­u­lar air-con­di­tion­ing fig­ures, recorded in 40 de­liv­er­ies. An undis­closed brand fol­lowed on 21, while Spheros also had a dou­ble-fig­ure month.

The mar­ket was again largely driven by de­mand from NSW, which oc­cu­pied 44 per cent. Vic­to­ria im­proved its re­cent share with 18 per cent, but was still be­hind Queens­land on 19 per cent. The Top End gets a rare men­tion this month, too.
