The new motor vehicle market in South Africa continues to decline, with July 2019 seeing a 3.7 percent year-on-year drop. The month recorded sales of 47 856 units.

As with the trend, passenger cars saw the biggest hit, with sales declining by 8.2% compared to July of the previous year.

Commercial vehicles of all categories saw a bump in sales. Light commercial vehicles increased by 2.9%, medium commercial by 14.9% and heavy commercial increased by a massive 21.4% compared to last year.

“While the small interest rate cut during July was warmly welcomed by industry and consumers alike, it may take some more incentive from the Reserve Bank to jump-start the economy and entice consumers back into the new vehicle market,” said WesBank’s Executive Head of Motor, Ghana Msibi.

There was also an increase in new vehicle export, up by 22.1%.
