VFACTS: September 2023 new car sales results for Australia

The September VFACTS new vehicle registration figures are out, and yep, it’s been another record month for the new car industry in Australia.

With 110,702 units registered, it was the best September recorded ever. And that follows on from the 109,966 sales in August 2023, which was also a record for the month. It shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise in some ways, given the country’s population is growing.

It’s also a sign that the car industry in on the mend following the impact of the COVID pandemic, and in particular, production and supply chains freeing up. FCAI chief executive Tony Weber spoke about the results in a statement, saying:

“Consumers have a choice of vehicles across 20 light vehicle segments – from small passenger cars through to larger utes – confirming Australia’s position as one of the most open and competitive new vehicle markets in the world. Our advice is that the supply of vehicles into Australia, including electric vehicles, continues to improve so those consumers who want to buy a new vehicle should visit a dealer or manufacturer.”

Across in the luxury field, the large above $70,000 segment was led by the Porsche Taycan. Despite its premium price, the feel-good sports sedan reported a 100 per cent increase in sales compared with the same month last year.

The BMW 5 Series continues posting reasonable figures, for this class, followed by the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. These are set to transition to electric power soon as well, following the Taycan.

On that note, it’s interesting to see the Audi e-tron GT (sister vehicle to the Taycan) outsold the combustion-engined sibling, the A6 in September. Although, the next-gen 2025 A6 is just around the corner and is set to come with ‘e-tron’ electric power as well.

At the top end of the sedan segment, the upper large above $100,000 class was led by the BMW 7 Series, followed by the Mercedes-Benz S-Class. It seems CEOs and other executives selected the combustion-engined models over EVs, for the month, compared with August where the i7 fully electric model was the most popular.

Ford Mustang sales are dropping off visibly now after a fair few years at the top. But that’s likely due to the new model being just around the corner (set to arrive in Australia at the start of 2024).

Segment sales reached 531 units in September, and that’s down 10.9 per cent on the same month in 2022. The year-to-date tally is at 5281 units, up 56.6 per cent. See below for the full results for the month, with the percentage change compared with September last year in brackets:
