Gauteng still remains the most popular province for new car sales, leading throughout 2018.

Data provided by Lightstone Auto  reveals how many cars were sold in each province last year.

While Gauteng's new vehicle sales are just short of 10 000 for December 2018, provinces such as the Free State and Northern Cape amassed a year-to-date total of 10 160 units. To put that into perspective, that is the estimate figure of cars sold each month in Gauteng.
