Which manufacturers are rolling with the pandemic and parts-shortage punches of 2021 as the market continues its recovery?
In the second article of our two-part 2021 half-term sales report series, we continue to find out which brands are winning or losing in Australia’s new-car sales race.
Peugeot: Up 17 per cent – small winner
Best-selling model: 3008 mid-sized SUV (355 sales; down 17 per cent)
Fastest-growing model: 2008 compact SUV (272 sales; up 319 per cent)
The second-generation 2008 compact SUV, introduced in the second half of 2020, has been the biggest contributor to Peugeot’s local sales – with a mighty 319 per cent growth mostly responsible for the overall increase of 17 per cent. Peugeot’s Expert and Partner vans have also chipped in – up 60 and 111 per cent, respectively. Despite updated versions introduced for 2021, though, the 3008 mid-sized SUV and 508 sedan have both lost sales compared with this time last year.
