Hail storm delivers windfall to new-car sales in Canberra

Official figures from the Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries for March show sales of new cars in the Australian Capital Territory increased by a staggering 77 per cent compared to the same month the previous year (from 1700 to almost 3000 vehicles) – as the overall market nationally fell by 18 per cent.

Toyota passes 15 million hybrid sales globally, Australia eclipses 134,000

Japanese car giant Toyota has passed another major milestone, producing its 15 millionth hybrid car since the first Prius hit the road in 1997. The company estimates the 15 million hybrid cars over 23 years have saved more than 120 million tonnes of CO2 compared with equivalent petrol vehicles which use twice to three times as much fuel. In Australia, Toyota has sold more than 134,000 petrol-electric hybrid cars, after passing the 100,000 mark 11 months ago.
