VFACTS: March 2020 new car sales

New vehicle sales took a hit in March, as you might expect, although it wasn't the cataclysmic drop some might have projected. VFACTS data compiled by the Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries released today shows that car sales fell by 17.9 per cent compared to March last year, to 81,690 sales. You have to return to 2009, at the height of the global financial crisis, to find a lower figure for March. That year there were 75,650 new cars sold.
