June 2023 new vehicles registrations of 23,560 was a record monthly tally and up 95.5% year on year.

The clean car policy change was again cited as, in the previous record month, March 2022, people rushed to register vehicles to avoid the introduction of Clean Car Discount fees and this was repeated in June 2023 to avoid increasing fees or reducing rebates from 1 July.

Passenger vehicles accounted for 17,299 registrations and commercial vehicles 6,261.

Passenger registrations also set a monthly record, 97.5% higher than the monthly average year to date, 80.9% higher than June 2022 and 45.7% higher than the previous record month (September 2021 at 11,874 units). Year to date, passenger vehicles are up 8.3%.

The commercial vehicle registrations were the second highest for a month.

Year to date, sales remain down 6.5% due to the impact of the Clean Car Discount fees on light commercial vehicles.
