More new ve­hi­cles sold

Go! Camp & Drive - - News -

The Novem­ber 2017 sales fig­ures for new ve­hi­cles show an up­wards trend, with 32 821 units find­ing new homes. That’s a 16,4% im­prove­ment on Novem­ber 2016’s fig­ure of 28 207. This is largely thanks to rental com­pa­nies that ac­quired just about 20% of all new ve­hi­cles sold. Low in­vestor con­fi­dence and a strug­gling econ­omy are re­spon­si­ble for de­clin­ing sales in the light com­mer­cial ve­hi­cle mar­ket. 1 170 fewer bakkies and minibuses were sold in Novem­ber 2017 than in the same month in 2016. That’s a drop of 7,4%. This sales fig­ure is slightly higher than Oc­to­ber 2017, though.
