In the first round of bidding for July, Certificate of Entitlement (COE) premiums climbed across all categories. The strong climb this session in the Cat E COE sees premiums for the category climbing above the $110,000 mark.

The various promotions offered from authorised dealers such as those from Borneo Motors over the course of the last weeks may have continued to spur interest in new car purchases, leading to the stronger and more numerous bids seen this session compared to the last.
