If you bought a car last month, congratulations! You helped drive the automotive industry to a record month, which saw more cars sold in a single month than ever before!

Overall, 112,566 cars were sold in June, which topped the previous best month of June 2010, which saw 108,722 vehicles sold. June has historically always been the best month for new car sales, with nine out of the ten best months of all time being a June.

Since the beginning of the year, 547,854 cars have been sold, which is a nice rebound for an industry struggling through natural disasters last year.

Also worth noting is that the Toyota Hilux has been the top selling car for three consecutive months, outselling the Mazda 3 4,308 to 3,924, and helping Toyota maintain its crown as Australia’s most popular car manufacturer.
