Australia Automotive Sales Data & Trends


Car sales in Australia have been in soft over the last few years and 2019 was a particular bad year. While Australians have a higher car per person than most of the world, the local market has dropped in recent years. Despite recent slack, the Australian market is good for about 1 million car sales every year and has done that for well over a decade.

Here you will find annual car sales figures for Australia. These statistics are Total Market Volumes, which include passenger cars as well as light commercial vehicles (LCVs).

The figures below come from unconfirmed sources and can vary slightly from other data you may find elsewhere. Despite our best efforts to find the most reliable data, we can’t guarantee 100% accuracy, unless a specific source is mentioned below the table. Still, we’re confident the provided data is sufficiently indicative of the size and trend of the market to be published as such. If you have access to a confirmed source of Australian car sales figures, including a split between Passenger Cars and LCVs, or data going back before 2005, please get in touch with us.
