By IOL Motoring Staff

The first month of 2013 saw no letting up in the upward sales spiral for new vehicles.

In fact, the industry recorded double-digit growth in January, posting a 14.1 percent increase over the same month last year, according to the latest figures released by Naamsa.

A total of 55 007 vehicles found homes in South Africa and while these figures are encouraging, Naamsa cautions that pre-emptive buying - ahead of expected price increases due to currency weakness - would have been a factor.

In the manufacturers' sales race, Volkswagen narrowly beat Toyota with a total tally of 10 511 against 10 219. GMSA (5585), Nissan (4645) and Ford (3969) made up the top five.

The individual sales figures still exclude non-reporters like Hyundai, Kia and Mercedes-Benz, although it's likely that the latter will be reporting in the near future.
