A total of 81,065 cars were sold in April, resulting in 343,501 cars sold so far this year. This was a decrease of 12.2 percent compared to the same month in 2021.

FCAI CEO Tony Weber said it was the result of global challenges that have affected the production and delivery of new cars.

“We know that this does not reflect the demand for new cars in the market. This reflects the ability of the global automotive industry to supply cars not only to the Australian market but to all markets around the world.

“Car manufacturers continue to suffer from a shortage of microprocessor units, which affects their ability to boost production to pre-pandemic levels. Covid-19 continues to affect production and supply, especially where plants have been forced to close and transport operations have not yet fully resumed. This is reflected in the increase in delivery time of new cars.

Toyota led the market with 17,956 cars sold. The second was Mazda (7,378). Third was Mitsubishi (6,463). Kia took fourth place (6180). Fifth place in Hyundai (5,552).

The Toyota Hilux was the best-selling model (4493). The second was the Ford Ranger of 3581. The third was the RAV4 Toyota (3373). The CX-5 from Mazda took fourth place (2701). Fifth was D-Max Isuzu Ute (2374).
