A Roy Morgan Single Source survey, which was carried out in the three months to November 2017, shows that 2.38 million Australians aged 14+ intend to purchase a new vehicle in the next four years. This is an increase of 142,000 over the same period in 2016, and has left intentions only marginally lower than the 15-year high recorded in February 2017. The survey also shows that new vehicle intenders continue to have a much higher level of consumer confidence than the population average. Over the November quarter, the consumer confidence for all Australians was 114.1, whereas those intending to purchase a new vehicle in the next four years had a much higher level with 122.8. In addition to four-year vehicle buying intentions being close to record levels, one-year intentions are up by 13,000 (2.2%) over the same period in 2016 to be currently on 615,000. Those intending to purchase in the next 12 months also had higher-than-average consumer confidence.
