Total New Vehicle Market – 1,155,408 Units – Up 3.8% on 2014 tally. 2015 is also a new record year.

Previous best year was in 2013 when 1,136,227 Units were sold.

SUV sales now account for 35.0% of the Australian market, while Passenger Car sales account for 44.0%. Many predict with the continuing growth of SUV’s, sales of SUV’s will overtake traditional Passenger Car sales by 2020.

If you take a closer look at the results, you’ll also see a pattern. Every FCA brand, Fiat, Alfa Romeo, Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge, took big hits. Chrysler and Dodge sell one model each, the Chrysler 300 sedan and the Dodge Journey SUV. Fiat and Jeep have been hit with constant recalls and bad servicing reports, which has lead to sales drop, plus pricing has crept up to the point that vehicles like the Jeep Renegade and Fiat 500X are considered overpriced. Fiat also deleted the Panda and Punto from it’s Australian lineup in 2015.

Also another pattern, what ‘dieselgate’?? It seems it hasn’t effected sales of VAG vehicles in Australia, with Volkswagen, Audi and Skoda, all increasing their sales and all recording record sales! SEAT is the only one missing, but they could be making a return in 2017 if you believe the reports, I have my fingers crossed ……

And another pattern, Chinese brands are all but fading into the sunset in Australia, with only LDV and Foton seeing in action. Great Wall has all but disappeared in Australia, selling only 147 Units and down 95.0% and Chery too is on it’s way out. It’s hard to imagine Great Wall sold 11,000 vehicles in Australia just 3 years ago!!

And yet another pattern, Sime Darby is responsible for the importation of SsangYong, Peugeot and Citroen into Australia and look and behold, they too took big hits when compared to their 2014 sales results. Sime Darby is a Malaysian owned automotive company that has made a mess of these three brands. Citroen is priced higher than Peugeot, yet in Europe and other world markets, it’s the other way round, while starving the Citroen brand of new models. The C4 Catus will only reach Australia in March 2015!! New Zealand has had it since the middle of 2014, I believe.

One more pattern, the down fall of both GM-Holden and Ford in Australia, is a sad sight! Both recorded lower sales results and in Ford’s case, not seen since 1967!!

Out of the Top 10, only Mazda, Hyundai, Volkswagen and Subaru saw record sales, while in the Top 20, Jeep and Suzuki were the only ones not to score record sales.

And a special mention to a brand that I am fond of and that’s Renault. It’s hard to believe that in 2010, the brand only moved 1,778 units in Australia. 5 years later in 2015, they’ve sold 11,525 units! That’s quite a turnaround for the car maker. A pity the same couldn’t be said for Peugeot and Citroen. (by TuRbO_J on 2016-02-06 21:28:33 )

    I think Proton are on their last legs in Australia. There’s meant to be the new Iriz (Savvy) small car coming to Australia, but apart from that, they’ll keep plugging away with the Exora MPV and Suprima S hatch. The Preve sedan was axed from their lineup at the end of 2015.

    There is still a fair amount of Protons here on the roads in WA but almost all of them are 2010 or older so not many new ones at all
    I still haven’t seen a Exora yet or a Suprima S
    I didn’t know they axed the Preve so and that is the most common modern Proton I have seen in WA so they probably won’t get more sales any time soon
