That said, over the past year notable seasonally adjusted falls in new motor vehicle sales in Queensland (4.6% y/y) and Western Australia (-5.9% y/y) have been recorded, perhaps reflective of mining investment having passed its peak.
The figures also tanked over the past year for Tasmania (-12.3% y/y) and ACT (2.2% y/y) but the ABS doesn't appear to believe its own figures for Tassie and Canberra, so perhaps not too much to read into that.
Anyway, a nice bounce in new motor vehicle sales in June regardless.
No doubt what the big winner has been over the past 15 years - Sports Utility Vehicles (SUVs), sales of which just keep on climbing (click chart):
In short, a nice boost to sales in June across the nation, indicating that the post-budget "shock" was as expected merely a temporary knee-jerk reaction rather than a matter of lasting damage to the economy.
