Renault on the rise!
So true it’s unbelievable how well they are doing, I very proud of the way Renault Australia have been playing the cards.
Must admit they are great cars it’s just up to the population to realise how good they are and forget the “conspiracy theories”.
First thing I went and looked at – by far the best of the Frenchies. They’ve come so far in the last few years.
Imagine where they’ll go with a new Koleos and Megane. Captur out next year too.
Well done Holden. Not only is the Commodore outselling the Camry and Aurion combined, the Statesman has dramatically closed the gap to the Chrysler 300, and the Ute has very decent sales figures. 4113 sales off the Commodore platform, or near enough to 40 percent of their total sales. Good result for the Aussies whose job it is to build them. And the Cruze accounts for nearly another 20. Who says nobody want the local product?
You mean the Caprice. Holden (unfortunately) dropped the Statesman nameplate back in 2010.
yes, and no – I dislike using the name Caprice as it reminds me of god-awful Chevrolets, and I’m a proud Aussie. You are lucky I didn’t call it a Brougham 😉
Brougham was a god awful GM US name plate before we borrowed it Phil.
geez, and I was thinking of the horse drawn carriage, not the Cadillac 😉
Hey, don’t knock Broughams! I learnt to drive (and to do other things 😉 ) in a Brougham.
I hear you, Don. 307 and powerglide, depending on the diff ratio you could hit 90mph in first… and the brocade upholstery, pure luxury! Well, it was for us folk used to “scorcher” vinyl in the Premier!
Broughams are beautiful beasts, but I mean ‘beautiful’ in more of the sense of them being the high point of the HK to HG ranges with glorious tack such as the brocade upholstery and ridiculously long boot. I have a soft spot for them probably because of all those things.
Could Holden bring out a limited edition Caprice Brougham with all the chintz the Chinese Park Avenue gets? mmmmmm!
Finally ! Proton got ahead of Chery….. oh, who am I kidding. -__-
Renault is doing very welll. Surely this and the fact that Alfa (with two models) is outselling Peugeot and Fiat (with a small range) is outselling Skoda is proof for Skoda and Peugeot that they are in dire need of a new pricing structure…
Happy campers at Renault. Skoda needs some help from Daddy.
Skoda are being squeezed badly by VW. VW need to get serious about finding Skoda a place in the market or pulling them out. Great cars that are being let down by the pricing.
Lexus need to pull their finger out.
Clearly the GS styling isn’t appeasing people and the IS sales seems to be dismal too.
In fact, the GS already looks dated I hate to say.
Is there a source that lists, for example, the top ten of a particular segment or perhaps the top 50 selling vehicles etc. I would find it interesting to keep an eye certain models that I have a personal interest in and their sales progress.
If you can get the VFacts figures you get vehicle by model code and state.
So if you see Commodore, you can see how many were base model and SS, SSV and SSV Redline and so on by state and how many were auto and manual.
You can also get all truck info too. It will give you all the data that you need.
It goes out like 20 off columns of data and how many rows down depending total number of cars/trucks sold.
Corollas just sell,and sell,and sell…
proves there is no accounting for taste 😉
That’s because they are a great looking car!
No it doesn’t. It just proves how many Indians and Asians there are in Australia!
If only you had a brain you would do much better in this world. Corolla is bought by fleets e.g rental car companies and businesses. They are also popular with all private buyers of all nationalities / age / religion who want reliable transport.
Wow someone needs a sense of humour adjustment… Being in the car industry for 9 years i know exactly why they sell so many. I’m also doing quite well in this world too…
Well done. Save your racist comments to yourself.
Oh don’t be so politically correct, it’s not racist; he’s just making an observation, which is actually wrong anyway, I’m sure you’d find most Corolla owners are, let’s say, ‘Anglo,’ because they certainly are in Melbourne. The fleet buyers are another reason as stated above.
dude its an observation……..also probably not the most accurate one. I know a lot of indians love the camry……….dont know why but it just appeals to them. Cant say the same about the corrolla however being from an indian heritage i have owned one 😀
Freedom of speech No racism intended and it looks like you were the only one offended.
Im from an Indian heritage and i get the flak hes handing out. dont go too serious on a forum. Having said that matt ive seen plenty of asian in the sunnybank hills area of brissy driving high end audi’s and minis. Actually the latter one baffles me- whats the attraction to mini’s and asian!?!?
Thanks for not having an e-cry like Henry did. Funny how i offended Henry but you were able to see the lighter side of it. There was no racism intended anyway. Poor Henry..
Asians love the way the minis can be customised and the quirky looks of them. The retro style does it. they also love the VW Beetle, Toyota Ruckus and Nissan Cube.
I think its just the medium- hard to understand intent behing a typed up comment without the emotions, tgone etc…… Please do not get me started on the Ruckus. That car defies logic!!!! Time for me to be politically incorrect and wonder if the number of toys/ dolls a car’s window can display has anything to do about it!?!? :D…….ok i apologise in advance for any offence taken….
Well done to jeep , another month on top
Honda have a lot of work to do. Good product is starting to come through, however, they need to make their warranty a standard 5 years and offer Toyota level fixed price servicing. They also need a well priced mainstream 5 door hatch, to get volumes up. The Civic hatch is cool, and practical, however, it has a few quirks that need sorting out, like the split rear window, concealed rear door handles, split instrument panel, and old school 5 speed auto and a fairly dull 1.8 engine that needs 95 RON fuel.
I am surprised at where they are in that list- particularily being behing volkswagen considering the premium the brand charges. Ofcourse having said that honda can be a bit expensive too……….still, it offers more range than subaru however still sits behind it……..very very interesting to see how they will respond to the market challenges here in aus. Must be notes half the problems have been created by themselves- SI civic being too exp, CR-Z under powered and over priced etc………….
Some brands are missing from that list – namely, Geely, Mahindra, Tata, and Foton. These brands don’t report their figures to VFACTs.
Fiat Professional is the trucks and vans?
Correct. Interesting that they keep it separate
If anything, it makes Fiat’s figures look worse than they are. When you add back the Fiat Professional figures onto Fiat, they’ve been shifting over 500 units a month for the last few months (I think CA themselves pointed out a couple of months back that it’s Fiat Chrysler Australia that are reporting Fiat Professional to VFACTS as a separate manufacturer).
Good work Fiat! I’m one of those October figures, picked up my new 500 a couple of weeks ago 😀 I hope the company continues to do well.
I’ve Ben reading a few US web sites and they are saying that slow delivery of Caprice PPV is causing order cancellations. Come on Holden get your export act together because they really like the car.
Saab still on the list and equal to Ferrari
Despite the 86/BRZ dominance, the Veloster is maintaining good numbers.
It’s a shame the great Falcon Ute is not their!
sorry Toyota haters
do you mean like…Tony Abbott…? Sounds good in the brochure until something actually goes wrong. And you can count on it.
Toyota actually is japanese for “white goods on wheels”
yes, they are. That does not diiminish the success that Holden have achieved with the VF, both in delivering a great product and sharper pricing.
I’ve heard about this, and it’s even worse in Queensland. It is an absolute disgrace and an embarrassment for everyone involved. We’ve got a car industry that needs every extra sale at the moment, so, if you’re taxpayer funded in any way, you should, without exception, buy Australian. It’s just so obvious isn’t it? Yet these moronic fleet operators don’t care or even know. There is not a single car-producing country in the entire world who’s fleets do not buy locally made at every opportunity they can. I am so sick of this issue, and do not even get me started on the RDNS, whose massive fleet of cars I see every day and seems to include every single small car on the market except for the one (Cruze) made in Australia.
If you have ever driven a Cruze you would know why.
You sound like you’re still stuck in the past Joe, there’s plenty to like about the current Cruze, as in, the one before the update earlier this year. It’s irrelevant though, if you’re using tax payer funds to purchase cars, they should be Australian, end of story. I don’t care if it’s the worst car on the market, you’re getting a free car, so suck it up.
I agree. There’s nothing that a i45 police car can do that a Cruze, Carmy, Aurion, Commodore cant do….
Hyundai must be throwing cars at the force.
Look if its not reliable, then you cant really expect them to use the car even if it is Aussie built. having said that i agree with you- all the issues mentioned seem to have turned a new leaf with the latest updates of the cruze- so from here on in- really there is no excuse for not buying aussie cars if you are using tax funds!!!
Apologies for lack of proofreading, I meant AFTER the update.
