ABOUT THIS ISSUE

This issue presents details for the Sales of New Motor Vehicles for June 2010.

CHANGES IN THIS ISSUE

Re-introduction of trend estimates - The trend estimates have been re-introduced for all new motor vehicle sales. Unusual influences associated with the Global Financial Crisis were affecting the new motor vehicle sales series, but these effects can now be estimated with a sufficient level of accuracy. However, caution should still be used when interpreting the recent new motor vehicle sales trend estimates as they may still be affected further by unusual economic factors. For further details, please see Explanatory Notes, paragraph 12.
