SUVs and vans and utes continued to lead the way although growth appeared at the extremities of various categories.
I passenger cars, the smallest vehicles, the micros, and the flashiest, sports cars were, the only categories to grow.
With SUVs the smallest light class and the Upper large category showed the dominant growth each over 80%.
Small vans grew over 100% although with utes it was the 2WD rather than the 4 WDs that showed the most growth.
All states except Tasmania increased sales
Private buyers were the big improvers, business showed a little growth but Government and Rental sales were well down.
Hybrid vehicles were the big winners with sales up over 73%.
