Passenger car sales rose by 20.1% in June to a new all-time best for the month of 31,035 from 25,844. That took growth for the year to 9.9% at 179,842 from 163,713. The annualised selling rate now stands at 312,000, and that is the highest level in Austria since 1992. The all-time record for full-year sales in Austria is the 320,094 of 1992, and the way that the market is shaping up at present, that record is in danger of falling.
