Vehicle Registrations and sales in SA

Today’s post compares the Automotive Business Council (Naamsa) vehicle sales figures to the electronic national administration traffic information system (NaTIS) data. Since 2016, the NaTIS new registrations have been about 10% higher than the Naamsa total new vehicle sales, and shows significant seasonality. According to NaTIS, there are about 13 million registered vehicles in South Africa, with cars representing 60% of that figure.


Unfortunately, NaTis did not respond to our data queries about gaps in the published data.
