FCAI Chief Executive Tony Weber, said Australia’s demand for new vehicles has continued into 2024 with another record-breaking month of sales.

“Australian motorists’ strong preference for Utes, accounting for 20.3 per cent of sales this month, demonstrates the challenges with the proposed New Vehicle Emissions Standard. Out of 21,327 Utes sold in February, only one was an EV.

Battery electric vehicles accounted for 9.6 per cent of sales in February. While one in five vehicles sold was powered by low emissions technologies.

“Growing sales of electric vehicles across other market segments. Proves that where a battery electric product exists which suits the driving habits of Australian motorists, work and recreation needs they will purchase these vehicles,” Mr Weber said.
