ABOUT THIS ISSUE

This issue presents details for the Sales of New Motor Vehicles for June 2012.


DATA NOTES

The flooding which occurred in Thailand in from June 2011 may have had an impact on new vehicle sales in Australia due to associated delays in delivery of Thai manufactured vehicles and vehicle parts. The impacts from the flooding is no longer affecting the supply of new motor vehicles to Australia from Thailand.

The earthquake and tsunami which occurred in Japan in March 2011 had an impact on the number of new vehicle sales in Australia in mid 2011 due to a reduction in supply. These events are no longer affecting the supply of new vehicles, with Japanese motor vehicle production now returning to levels observed before March 2011.

As new motor vehicle sales are influenced by a range of factors, it is not possible to quantify the specific impacts of these events.
