New ve­hi­cle sales surge

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS -

AUS­TRALIANS bought a record num­ber of new ve­hi­cles last month.

Of­fi­cial fig­ures from the Fed­eral Cham­ber of Au­to­mo­tive In­dus­tries re­leased yes­ter­day show 134,171 ve­hi­cles were re­ported as sold dur­ing June.

That is up 4.4 per cent on the same month last year and the third record June sales fig­ures in a row.

The strong re­sult in June fol­lows record sales in May – the big­gest in four years – as buy­ers con­tinue to cash in on low in­ter­est rates.
