- Light Commercial vehicles dominated this supply rebound (+34.1)
- Even with this increased supply, clearance rates have climbed to levels (+7.8%) unseen in the past 10 years – highlighting the demand in the market
- Prices for the top 15 traded vehicles were generally positive, with only Holden Commodore’s (-3.5%) and Colorado’s (-1.8%) declining – although they had climbed up the past several weeks
- Despite this supply rebound, consensus around the market is there continues to be a shortage of used car stock
