Cape Town - New vehicle sales in South Africa showed a "positive trend" with 48 113 units sold in February 2017, reports Naamsa (National Association of Automobile Manufacturers of South Africa).

Naamsa said: "The positive trend in new vehicle sales had been maintained during the month, characterised by noteworthy gains in light commercial vehicle, as well as medium and heavy commercial vehicle sales."

The consumer driven new car market has, however, shown a drop in sales.
