Winners and losers in SA’s bakkie market
Hilux, Hardbody gain ground compared to last year while Ranger and Navara launch new models in a bid to stimulate sales
Sales of light commercial vehicles took a dip in SA last month in a subdued economy.
New bakkies and minibuses sold 12,197 new units in May, a decline of 1,816 units (13.0%) from the 14,013 sales of the corresponding month last year. Demand for new vehicles is likely to remain under pressure in the coming months as the market continues to be affected by numerous constraining factors.
