To provide Australian motor industry members and other interested parties with monthly reports on new vehicle sales by make/model and within market segment.

The VFACTS Unit was set up by the Statistics and Economics Committee of FCAI to provide an effective means of reporting new vehicle sales. The previous system was based on registration data gathered from various state jurisdictions. The VFACTS system is based on retail reporting by all member companies, with this information being audited by the ABS.
