Rising inflation, higher fuel costs and currency fluctuations are squeezing consumer incomes, leading to a decline in vehicle sales. We saw a 8.5% decrease in financed vehicles and 9.1% drop in new passenger vehicle sales as consumers opt for cheaper, older, used vehicles and alternative financing. This trend was reflected in reduced vehicle financing among lower-income individuals. However, manufacturers are countering with discounts and incentives, helping consumers afford vehicles, potentially stabilising and growing the market despite economic headwinds.
