ABOUT THIS ISSUE

This issue presents details for the Sales of New Motor Vehicles for June 2011.


DATA NOTES

The earthquake and tsunami that occurred in Japan on 11 March 2011 may have affected new motor vehicle sales in Australia due to associated delays in delivery of Japanese manufactured vehicles. Although the quality of the estimates in this publication are not affected, impacts from the earthquake and tsunami could continue to disrupt supply of new motor vehicles to Australia.

Widespread flooding in the eastern states, particularly Queensland, and other natural disasters have not adversely affected the quality of estimates in this release. These events may have impacted the number of new vehicle sales since early 2011. However, as new motor vehicle sales are influenced by a range of factors, it is not possible to quantify the specific impact of these events.
