Has the Coronavirus had an impact on car sales
Car sales have been declining for several years but now they are in free fall.
In March 2020 sales fell by nearly 18% compared to 2019.
Toyota and Subaru did manage to hold their numbers while Kia continued to increase and for the first time in Australia, Kia outsold its corporate cousin Hyundai.
Price could be coming an even bigger issue with MG, Haval and Great Wall all showing large percentage increases. For the month MG was the 16th best selling brand outselling: Audi, Lexus Land Rover, Volvo
Anecdotal information suggests that the sales in March were progressively worse as the month progressed and April, which is usually a slow month for sales, has started disastrously.
