New motor vehicle sales numbers for last year (2018) reveal a number of surprises and confirmation that the Australia car market is continuing to undergo a changing of the old-guard.

Total sales for the 12 months were down for the third year running at a little under 1.16 million. The number was 1,189,116 in 2017 so a drop of circa 30,000 is still significant.

Ford ended the year with bragging rights having outsold Holden for the first time in 21 years.

It was also all smiles at Toyota with their HiLux achieving sales in excess of 50,000 units which was the highest by any motor vehicle in Australia in 10 years. They sold 47,093 in 2017.



Top Five sales in 2018 went to the Hilux, Ford Ranger, Toyota Corolla, Mazda 3 and Hyundai i30 in that order.

The Toyota Corolla was once again Australia's top selling passenger car teaming with the Toyota Camry which took the top-selling mid-sized sedan for the 25th year.

2018 was the 22nd year where Toyota has topped the Australian car market sold more than 200,000 vehicles.

But there was a change in the pecking order of car manufacturers in Australia last year with Mitsubishi now sitting in fourth place and ranked ahead of Holden and Ford for the first time.
