This month's October industry report contained some facts we thought you might interesting.
Our first section gives you some insight into vehicle sales comparisons between retail and commercial.
In the second section we look at sales by fuel type (especially interested in electric) and the third is the leaders in each vehicle range (and what the industry sees those ranges as.)
We have broken the market up into two sectors, Passenger and Light Commercial.
Passenger October 17 YTD 2017
Private 36,925 411,823
Business 33,566 423,849
Private 5,494 54,498
Business 11,642 109,758
No Government or rental vehicles are included in these figures and overall:
Private 42,419 (45.9%) 466,321
Business 45,208 (42.9%) 533,607
*The % is the market share of all sales.
For this, we have included Government and rental and called the two categories Private and Non-private, as we think it is important especially when we are talking environment.

Interestingly as a side note in all of Australia, the Electric only vehicle sales total 920 for all of 2017 which is .0934% of the vehicle market.
