June 2024 deliveries smashing expectations

The middle of the year has marked one of the highest points for Australian bus and coach deliveries, with numbers expected to keep climbing. 

With previous months staying consistent in the 130s, June capitalised on May’s strong numbers and surpassed them by two, delivering 158 buses and coaches in the month.

Volvo once again dominated the chassis market, this time with a whopping 69 deliveries in the month of June. Scania, Yutong and MAN all battled it out for the second spot, ultimately tying with 13 deliveries each for the month. Mercedes-Benz wasn’t far behind, almost joining the trio with 11 deliveries. After the leaders, BCI and Custom Denning both sat together with nine deliveries, while I-Bus and King Long trailed along with five each. From there, Challenger and BLK couldn’t be split with four each, wrapping up with BYD on three deliveries for the month.

While not surpassing it’s May stats, Volgren still pulled an incredible feat this month, with the body builder making 57 deliveries. It was more than two times ahead of the next best Irizar (23), who beat out BCI (16) and Yutong (13). Custom Denning was on Yutong’s tail, with 12 deliveries for June, while King Long, BLK and I-Bus each had 5 for the month. From there, Challenger recorded four deliveries, while Marcopolo and Global Bus Ventures each recorded three. Coach Concepts, Nexport and Bus Tech each had two while Omnibus, Coach Design and Scania rallied at the end with one delivery each.

It should come as no surprise that with 156 deliveries, seating giant McConnell would be pulling numbers, with 80 deliveries reported in June. Sege increased on its May numbers, with 38 units to take out second place, while Yutong and StyleRide were awarded the bronze medal with 11 deliveries a piece. APM, King Long and Fainsa tied with five units each, with Marcopolo finishing the market off with one delivery.

Coachair once again overtook reigning champ Thermo King this month, recording a whopping 45 deliveries over their 39. Hispacold took out third with 23 deliveries, while Valeo (16) and Cling-Yutong (13) followed behind closely. King Long, Songz and MCC each recorded a steady five units, with Spheros almost joining the trio on four. Konvekta rounded out the A/C deliveries this month with one unit.

Victoria’s usual reign as number one was shot this month, with Queensland smashing out 55 deliveries. The usual champ followed behind on 43 deliveries, while New South Wales (26) and Western Australia (23) battled it out for third. Following our victors were South Australia (seven) and ACT (one) finalising the deliveries for the sector.
