June keeps numbers steady
Volvo had a very strong June, with its 39 deliveries the best seen since July 2020

It was triple figures again for bus deliveries in June, with 102 units sent out across Australia marking a strong end to the last financial year.

In the chassis sector Volvo strode out in front with 39 deliveries – an impressive 16 ahead of its May result and its highest result since July 2020. Scania came in second with 16, down from May’s 23, while BCI snagged third place with 15, up from the previous month’s seven. Yutong dropped to fourth with 10 and Mercedes-Benz saw an increase of two on May’s result to reach eight. BYD and I-Bus matched with a pair of fives – marking BYD’s highest result of the year so far. Custom Denning saw an increase to three, up from May’s one, while King Long recorded one delivery. 

In the body-building sector Volgren retains its lead with a June result of 24, though this was a decline on May’s 31, while BCI took second place with 16 – double its May result. Custom Denning showed a strong end to the financial year with 15, up from six in May and its highest result this year. Irizar jumped up from one in May to 11 in June, while Yutong saw the opposite with a decrease from May’s 21 to a June total of 10. Bustech Group saw an increase May’s two to June’s seven, while I-Bus recorded five, falling from third place in May to seventh. The remaining 14 units were recorded by six other body builders.

In the air conditioning sector Thermo King saw its best result of 2022 with 45. Bringing up second place with a joint result of 14 were Hispacold and MCC – both seeing gains on their May results – while third place Cling-Yutong saw a drop from May’s 21 to reach 10. Valeo remained steady with six, though Coachair saw a small decrease from May’s seven to reach four in June. In seventh place we have a new addition to the ABC deliveries data, with Chinese supplier Songz recorded in four I-Bus units. The remaining six deliveries were from three other manufacturers.

At the state level Victoria was superseded by NSW, which saw 28 deliveries in June, up from 22 in May, while Western Australia took second place with 25, up from 20 the previous month. Queensland recorded 24 deliveries, up from 16 in May, while Victoria fell down the chart with 18 deliveries after having reached 40 the previous month. All remaining buses went to South Australia, which saw an increase from two in May to seven in June.
