There were 93 brand new buses de­liv­ered through­out Aus­tralia in April, 2018 - lower than March’s bumper fig­ure of 108, but still the sec­ond-busiest month of the year to date. It also com­pares well to the 86 recorded this time in 2017. In terms of chas­sis man­u­fac­tur­ers, Volvo con­tin­ues to soar, mark­ing 41 de­liv­er­ies and smash­ing its pre­vi­ous best of 33 in March. Sca­nia fol­lowed, but its fig­ure of 21 was down on its pre­vi­ous month’s high of 30. BCI again had the third most, but its 12 de­liv­er­ies were also a de­crease on March’s 19. The re­main­der had fewer than 10.

For the body builders, Volgren recorded its best num­bers of the year to main­tain top spot, notch­ing up 31 de­liv­er­ies, up seven on its pre­vi­ous best for 2018. BCI’s 12 matched last month’s tally and again was sec­ond-best in the sec­tor. Cus­tom Coaches had a strong month with 11 sales, fol­lowed by the re­main­ing 13 builders in sin­gle fig­ures.

Thermo King main­tains its po­si­tion at the top of the air-con pile, al­beit its 37 de­liv­er­ies were down 20 on last month’s peak. Spheros, how­ever, had a sig­nif­i­cant month-on-month in­crease, jump­ing from nine to 25. The other to hit dou­ble fig­ures, Denso, also im­proved from three to 10.

New South Wales was by far the busiest of the states, tak­ing up nearly half of the pie, with Vic­to­ria and West­ern Aus­tralia on 20 and 15 per cent re­spec­tively, while South Aus­tralia and Queens­land were also in­volved in the mar­ket.
