Truck sales stay in the green but tough months lie ahead
Medium and extra-heavies are buoyant but other commercial sectors take a sales dive
Though truck sales showed year-on-year growth at the end of August, it has been tough going for the SA commercial vehicle market over the past months.
According to the latest year-to-date sales figures released by the National Association of Automobile Manufacturers of SA (Naamsa), new commercial vehicle sales increased 3.1% compared with the first eight months of 2018. This brought the total of new trucks and buses sold in 2019 to 17,919 at the end of August.
