The Truck Industry Council (TIC) has just released the November 2018 truck sales data and again it was Japanese brands that filled the podium.

The data shows Isuzu was again the top-selling truck brand in Australia, the Japanese giants finishing ahead of compatriots Hino and Fuso.

Kenworth was within striking distance of Fuso (just 19 sales seperated 3rd and 4th spot).

Overall, 3,727 heavy commercial vehicles were delivered to customers in the month – that figure up slightly on the 3,629 deliveries in the same month last year.

Among the light-duty, medium-duty and heavy-duty truck brands there were 3,234 sales in November with heavy-duty leading the way.

The big boys accounted for 1,399 sales, ahead of light-duty (1,153) and medium-duty (710).

November 2018 Truck Sales (overall):

  • Isuzu – 888
  • Hino – 552
  • Fuso – 345
  • Kenworth – 326
  • Volvo – 239
  • Iveco – 134
  • Mack – 126
  • Mercedes-Benz – 122
  • MAN – 116

  • DAF – 39
  • Freightliner – 33
  • Western Star – 31
  • International – 10
  • Hyundai Trucks – 9
  • Dennis-Eagle – 1

Looking collectively at the different groups, Isuzu and Hino still managed to come out above the multi-brand players.

Daimler Trucks scored exactly 500 sales (Fuso, Mercedes-Benz and Freightliner), PACCAR racked up 365 sales (Kenworth and DAF).

Penske managed a total of 148 sales in the month (MAN, Western Star and Dennis-Eagle) to finish slightly ahead of Iveco Australia with 144 sales (Iveco and International).

Will the market pass the magic 40,000 sales this calendar year? Year to date sales at the end of November totalled 38,173 units, that means the milestone looks set to be passed for the first time ever in 2018.
