2018 overall though has been a great year for most automakers in general with sales up through the spectrum of models offered across various price ranges. However, with a slightly lacklustre festive season and higher fuel prices than ever before, the year-end sales for most automakers has been slightly on the lower side as compared to expected forecasts. That said, with fuel prices dropping steadily over the last few weeks, expect car sales to pick up once again in the new year especially since 2019 will also bring about a slew of new launches. On the flipside though, all cars are expected to cost a lot more as compared to ever before in the new year.
