South Africa cars sales continue to see growth JOHANNESBURG — New vehicle sales in South Africa will top 15% growth this year and 10% next year. Experts say the increase is due to low interest rates and new models. Sales were up 17.8% during November compared to same-time 1999. Automakers still are recovering from the economic crisis in 1999 that saw sales fall 8% and interest rates increase 25.5%.
