Off-road truck and van sales 2018 .

23-Apr-2019

 

The off-road truck market - including motorhome adaptations - was greatly increased in 2018 by the inclusion of 958 MAN trucks for the Australian Army, including 4x4, 6x6 and 8x8 configurations.

That put MAN marginally ahead of traditional market leader Isuzu, with 943 sales.

Next cab off the rank was Iveco, with 204 sales, closely followed by Hino, with 195 sales.

Fuso, with 107, Mercedes-Benz trucks, with 56, Scania, with 11 and Volvo, with eight, made up the rest of the field, for an off-road truck segment of 2480 sales.

Of these figures the car-licence segment - 128 sales - was dominated by Iveco, with 62 sales and Isuzu, with 55.

Not recorded in the off-road truck and van sales figures are Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 4x4 sales, because M-B refuses to separate its 4x2 and 4x4 sales, despite several requests from the Truck Industry Council.

The car-licence segment - 128 sales - was dominated by Iveco, with 62 sales and Isuzu, with 55.

It’s clear from the 2018 total that Isuzu is the commercial off-road truck market leader once again, but the newly released Hino 817 4x4 has had early success, with more than double Fuso’s figures. That’s ironic, because the Canter kicked off the whole light-4x4-truck market in Australia and has gone backwards since.

This year promises to be just as interesting, with the 2019 Daily range slated for fourth-quarter release. The reintroduction of Daily 4x4 vans should further increase the marque’s share.
