- Monochrome colours take the top spots
Nearly 21% of 2018’s new car purchases were painted grey, making this shade the most popular vehicle colour of the year. Both black and white cars followed closely behind, taking 20% and 18 per cent of the market share, respectively.
- Small vehicles stay popular
In terms of vehicle size, industry trends provide that smaller is better. Superminis remained the most popular car size in the market share last year, taking one-third of total sales.
- Environmentally-friendly options rise
As alternatively fuelled vehicle options increased in availability, many new car buyers decided to ‘go green’ in 2018. Hybrid, plug-in hybrid and battery electric car sales grew by 27% throughout the year. There are already approximately 40 plug-in vehicles available, with 20 more expected to hit showrooms during 2019.
