Australia: 1996-2009 Historical Data now available

2000 Holden Commodore. Picture by James Dobbin. All rights reserved.

After France, the second market I am adding some depth to is Australia. From 2004 to 2009, you will find the complete yearly Top 50 models ranking as well as every single monthly Top 20 for each year (that’s 72 consecutive Top 20’s… yes I have been hard at work!), the Top 35 for 2002 and 2003 and the best seller’s figures from 1996 to 2001.

The last 15 years in Australia have been dominated by the Holden Commodore, an impressive feat spanning 4 different generations of the model. Its volume, as well as its archenemy’s the Ford Falcon, have dropped over the period, giving room to smaller models like the Toyota Corolla, which nearly snapped the #1 spot in 2008. Utes (Australian for pick-ups), and particularly the Toyota Hilux, have also increased in popularity.

See below for all the direct links to the 9 available articles. Enjoy!
