VFACTS April 2021: New-car sales results, record month despite semiconductor shortages

New-car sales across Australia have bounced back from the worst April on record – during the peak of coronavirus lockdowns – to deliver the best April on record. And the Ford Ranger has topped the monthly sales charts for only the third time in its history, displacing the Toyota HiLux which maintains its lead in the year-to-date tally and is on-track for its sixth annual win in a row.

Police suspend mass random breath testing in some states amid coronavirus outbreak

Police in several Australian states have stopped conducting stationary, large-scale random breath tests and drug tests in an effort to protect both officers and the public from transmission of the COVID-19 coronavirus. Police forces in Western Australia, New South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania, South Australia and Queensland this week confirmed their officers will avoid carrying out high-volume booze bus testing, instead relying on targeted testing to catch those driving under the influence.

Kia Stinger joins Western Australia Police force

Western Australia has joined Queensland in adding the Kia Stinger to its police fleet. A fleet of 50 300S liftbacks will be hitting West Australian streets over the next 12 months, filling the gap left by the Holden Commodore SS and Ford Falcon XR6 Turbo. The Queensland Police Force stumped for the Stinger 330S as well, foregoing the Si's bigger infotainment screen, bigger wheels and leather seats in favour of the S's identical performance and lower entry price.
