Overall, out of the total 51 037 vehicles sold, an estimated 38 309 units or 75.1% represented dealer sales, 18.9% represented rental sales, 3.1% industry corporate fleets and 2.9% government car purchases, reports Naamsa.

Heinrich Coetzee, head of sales and product at Lightstone Auto, said: "Gauteng (as can be expected) is the largest province in terms of sales volume, followed by KZN and the Western Cape, whilst the Northern Cape brings up the rear.

"The provinces don’t move too much in terms of ranking in the respective markets, the only noticeable exception to this is that in the Passenger Market, Limpopo and North West are interchangeable as they both have very similar sales figures."
