GLOSSARY

Other vehicles

Includes utilities, panel vans, cab chassis, goods carrying vans, rigid trucks, prime movers, non-freight carrying trucks, and buses. Also includes four wheel drive light commercial vehicles not classified as sports utility vehicles (SUVs).

Passenger vehicles

Includes vehicles designed primarily for the carriage of people, such as cars, station wagons and people movers. Also includes four wheel drive passenger vehicles not classified as SUVs. Note that this is not directly comparable to the definition of passenger vehicles in ABS collections (such as the Motor Vehicle Census) which includes SUVs.

Sports utility vehicles (SUVs)

Includes vehicles designed as off road vehicles with four wheel drive capability, high ground clearance and a wagon body type, seating up to nine people (including the driver). Also includes four by two wagon variants of such vehicles sold in Australia which, if they were four wheel drive, would be eligible for import as off road vehicles. Excludes pick-up and cab chassis style vehicles. For more information on the specifications of SUVs, inquiries should be made to the Manager, VFACTS, Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries on (03) 9829 1234.
