Any way you cut it, 2017 is looking like being a real pearler for the Australian truck and bus industry.

The latest VFACTS data released this afternoon shows that once again sales of heavy vehicles were on the up again last month.

In total, 3,305 heavy vehicles were sold to Australian customers in the month, that’s up 15.4% on the same month last year.

Across the first nine months of the year, truck and bus sales are up just under 10% on 2016.

Once again, Isuzu was the nation’s best-selling truck brand, while Hino, Freightliner and Kenworth were among the best performing competitors.

The big mover though was MAN with sales climbing a mammoth 312% in the month!

Isuzu’s N-Series was the top-selling model with 391 deliveries, a 7.4% jump on the same month last year.
