The Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries has revealed that total car sales in Australia were down 13.7 per cent to 916,968 vehicles in 2020, making it the worst year for the industry since 2013. Toyota captured 22.3 per cent of all sales in 2020, while one in two cars sold was an SUV. Hybrid vehicle sales increased by 93.7 per cent, while electric car sales rose officially by 16.2 per cent; the actual figure is likely to be much higher as Tesla does not disclose its sales.
