Load-shedding and poor consumer confidence rocked vehicle sales in February, with new model sales declining year-on-year.

Industry sales declined 3016 units compared to February 2018, according to the National Automobile Association of South Africa (Naamsa). New vehicle sales ended the month on 43 251 units; 6.5% down on the same month last year.
