Sales of new vehicles in Australia in November rose 17.9% year on year to 95,080 units bringing the year to date total to 993,509.

“The automotive sector is continuing to recover from pandemic related shutdowns, a global shortage of microprocessors and the general supply chain uncertainty we experienced over the last two years,” FCAI chief executive Tony Weber said in a statement.

“The industry will deliver the one millionth vehicle to the market in 2022 next week.

“While this is positive news, many customers are still facing extended wait times for their vehicle with expected delivery dates for some models beyond 12 months.”

In November rental fleet sales were up 36.3% with 6,599 vehicles sold as operators prepared for the first major holiday period since border restrictions eased.

Toyota led the market with 20,107 vehicles sold. Mazda was second with 7,549, followed by Ford (7,165), Kia (6,120) and Mitsubishi (5,559).
