Sales of mid-sized vans – the most popular size category – are sitting at record highs in Australia so far in 2021.

Correlating with the boom in e-commerce and home deliveries, sales of 2.5-3.5 tonne GVM vans hit 2272 units in September, and sit at 19,543 year-to-date (YTD).

Those figures are up respectively by 85.8 per cent and 56.2 per cent over 2020.

Going back through the data archives and crunching the numbers, it appears these monthly and YTD figures for 2021 are the highest to date.
