A Roy Morgan Single Source survey has found that 2.491 million Australians aged 14+ intend to purchase a new car in the next four years. This is an increase of 184,000 intenders over the last four months. The big improvement has left new vehicle intentions only marginally lower than the 15-year high recorded in February 2017. In addition to four-year vehicle buying intentions being close to record levels, one-year intentions are up by 14,000 (1.5%) over the same period in 2016 to be currently on 626,000. A major driver of increased intentions over the next four years is that intenders have a much higher level of consumer confidence than the population average. Over the September quarter, the consumer confidence level for all Australians was 113.3, whereas those intending to purchase a new vehicle in the next four years had a confidence level of 121.8. Those intending to purchase in the next twelve months also had higher than average confidence (120.9).
