The charts below show the number and percentage of the sales of new cars in Australia in April in 1994, 2004 and 2014.
Shown in the pies is a comparison between three main categories of new cars sold in Australia in terms of their figures for sales in April in three separate years: 1994, 2004 and 2014.
Most notably, there was a downward trend in the figure for saloon sales, whose proportion declined by 20% in 2014, with the figure plunging by nearly 3000. Despite the steep declines, it is also noticeable that the sales of saloons held the lion’s share throughout the period.
Plunge v. (价值或程度) 暴跌或骤降
Steep adj. (上升或下降) 急剧的
Hold the lion’s share 占据份额
By stark contrast, several growths were observed in the two remainders, SUV and other types of cars, making great contributions to total sales. Specifically, one witnessed a consistent and sharp 18-percent rise, while the other experienced a sluggish increase of 2% before stabilizing at 21% in 2014. Correspondingly, it is worth mentioning that the former had an advantage over the latter at the end of the period.
Consistent adj. 始终如一的
Sluggish adj. 迟缓的
Stabilize v. 保持稳定
Correspondingly adv. 相应地
Overall, growth in the total sales was the general trend. While saloon sales had shrunk gradually since 1994, the two remaining types had both witnessed growing figures.
