Commercial vehicle sales report for April 2018

Note: Due to the merger of Chrysler and Fiat Group, which with effect from May 1 trade as Fiat Chrysler Automobiles South Africa, the April 2018 sales data for Fiat Chrysler Automobiles SA will be available only around the middle of May – and thus do not form part of this report. For the time being, Mercedes-Benz SA (MBSA) will only report aggregated sales data. The MBSA commercial vehicle market split volumes are estimates based on historical trends and forecasting techniques.
