Despite the drop in sales thousands of vehicles are still being sold in SA with many more being produced and exported to global markets.
"The latest vehicle sales reflected a welcome surprise," reports the National Association of Automobile Manufacturers of South Africa as more than 36 000 units were sold in April 2019.
Naamsa said: "The declining trend in the new vehicle market since the beginning of the year came to a halt in April 2019."
Locally, Gauteng leads the way with 52 391 units sold since January 2019, followed by KwaZulu-Natal (18 876) and the Western Cape (14 902).
