July deliveries jump up

Following two consecutive months of 102 deliveries, July saw 120 bus deliveries

It was yet again a case of the Australian market delivering triple figures in buses, but July saw another spike.

After both May and June saw 102 units delivered across Australia, July saw 120 buses sent across the country to kick off the new financial year with a bang.

In the chassis sector, Volvo stole the show, following up its 39 deliveries in June with another 27 in July. Yutong rose to steal second place off Scania, recording 22 deliveries, while Scania wasn’t far behind with 21. Bus & Coach International (BCI) stayed around the mark, increasing its June sales by three to record 18 deliveries, while Mercedes-Benz completed the top five with 10. King Long (6) and Hino (4) weren’t too far behind, while BYD and MAN both registered three. I-Bus saw two deliveries, while Custom Denning and Challenger Bus & Coach both sold the single chassis.

In the body-building sector, Volgren retained its lead, increasing its June result of 24 with 26 in July. Yutong had a massive month, leaping from its June result of 10 to finish in second place with 22 in July. BCI was yet again near the market, increasing its June result by four to record 20 for July, while Irizar also increased to 14. Both Bustech Group and King Long remained steady with six for the month, with Scania (5), Coach Concepts (4), Custom Denning (4) and Jbus (4) all rounding out a consistent market. In an evenly spread field, the remaining nine units were recorded by six body builders.

When it comes to air conditioning, Thermo King was once again on top of the market for July. After a 2022 record of 45 units in June, Thermo King followed it up with 36 units delivered in July. Clint-Yutong leapt into second place after recording 10 units in June, instead increasing to 22 for July. Hispacold (17) and MCC (16) remained as consistent as ever, while Coachair, King Long and Denso all couldn’t be split with six units apiece. Konvecta rose to record five units delivered in July, while Spheros (4) kept ahead of newcomer Songz (2) and Valoe with one.

When looking at the state level, NSW’s dominance in the market was usurped for the second consecutive month. In June Victoria stole the show, but in July it was WA who jumped ahead of the pack with 43 deliveries, or 36 per cent of the state breakdown. Victoria stayed not far behind with 31 deliveries as it increased its June number to fill 26 per cent of state deliveries, while NSW settled into third with 26 deliveries. Queensland experienced a fall in deliveries from its 24 deliveries in June, recording 16 in July, while South Australia fell from seven in June to three in July. Tasmania also entered the race, recording the one delivery to round out the 120 deliveries completed in July.
