2022 New Car Calendar for Australia

2022 New Car Calendar for Australia

Despite severe stock shortages, car makers haven’t pumped the brakes on their new car launch plans. Here’s everything confirmed for launch in Australia in 2022.

View 36 imagesJust 12 months ago, the light seemed to be at the end of the tunnel for the Australian new car market, with regular record sales months suggesting the worst of COVID-19’s impacts had now passed.

However, 2021 proved otherwise, with a global semiconductor shortage turning the industry on its head – extending wait times on most new cars by months – compounded by a fresh round of lockdowns.

Regardless of whether buyers could get behind the wheel of them, manufacturers still launched a slew of brand-new models, with the headline acts spanning everything from the hotly-anticipated Toyota LandCruiser 300 Series, to the new Hyundai Tucson, Kia Sportage, Volkswagen Golf and Mitsubishi Outlander.

In 2022, there’s no shortage of new metal on the horizon – led by the new Ford Ranger mid-year, and accompanied by a trio of new Nissan SUVs (Qashqai, X-Trail and Pathfinder), Toyota BZ4X electric SUV, fifth-generation Subaru WRX, and an onslaught of new Volkswagens.

Here’s your up-to-date guide listing every new model set for launch in Australia in 2022.

As always, much of the 2022 calendar is yet to be locked in – so we’ll be updating this article on a regular basis as new cars and launch timing details are announced. By popular demand, we’ve switched the calendar back to a brand-by-brand format, rather than chronological.

LAST UPDATE: 27 December 2021

Note: ‘Quarters’ refer to three-month periods throughout the calendar year – so January to March (first quarter), April to June (Q2), July to September (Q3) and October to December (Q4).
