Against all the odds and pes­simism, do­mes­tic new ve­hi­cle sales in­creased by 535 units for a to­tal of 49,223 units — an over­all im­prove­ment of 1.1% over the fig­ures recorded for March 2017. In fact, this was the best show­ing for the year so far and, to add even more op­ti­mism to an al­ready chirpy pic­ture, the vast ma­jor­ity of these sales went through the dealer chan­nels with the rental in­dus­try only ac­count­ing for a mod­est 5.3% of to­tal sales.
