The National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) has shared exclusive statistics on the growth of Australia's Performance-Based Standards fleet in 2017.

NHVR CEO, Sal Petroccitto, told Trailer Magazine there has now been more than 6,100 PBS combinations approved and the potential of the scheme is starting to truly bloom as sentiments change.

"We are seeing volumes growing at 30-40 per cent per year," Petroccitto said.

"Truck and dogs are a great example, with PBS-approved dog trailers representing more than 90 per cent of all new dog trailers."

According to the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) Performance-Based Standards (PBS) approved vehicles make up an estimated 20-25 per cent of all new vehicles currently registered in Australia.

Further details on Australia's PBS scheme will be available in the December editions of Prime Mover magazine and Trailer Magazine.
