VFACTS 2020: Headline models from Peugeot and Renault have big wins

2020 will always be known as a year like no other – and Australia's new-car sales results are in to back that up. The last two months of the year showed signs of recovery, but for many brands supply remains an issue. To the end of the 2020 calendar 916,968 new cars were reported as sold – down by 13.7 per cent compared to the prior year...

Top 20: Most talked about posts in 2020

We all know that 2020 was a year like no other. While we still saw plenty of new cars hit the market we also witnessed one of the most dismal years of sales. Factories were shut down globally due to the pandemic, border closures were put in place and Australia even said goodbye to an iconic brand.

2021 Nissan new cars

Nissan has seen a decline in sales of 27 per cent year on year in 2020. When you compare this to the market overall, which is down 16 per cent, this sounds rather significant, however a continuation of November's rebound is expected this month, keeping in mind the aforementioned figures only cover up to the end of November...

There's something to look forward to next year though, and it's set to arrive in Australia in mid-2021. The Lotus Evija electric hypercar is expected to cost around $3...

2021 Fiat and Abarth new cars

Fiat, like the majority of car manufacturers in this challenging climate, has seen a 30 per cent sales decline year-to-date. While a number of new models from Fiat are expected to launch in Europe in 2021, the brand's local arm remains tight-lipped about exactly which models will make their way to Australia. We do have word on Abarth though, which is due to release the 595 Pista...

2021 Ferrari new cars

With 2020 being a year like no other, it's difficult to make comparisons, particularly when a lot of people may be cutting back on luxuries. Ferrari sales year-to-date are down 22 per cent, selling a total of 189 units. 2021 is looking promising, with the hotly-anticipated arrival of the Roma – the first in a new family of Grand Tourers...
