Media Release

6 December 2012


Another Strong Month

New vehicle registrations continue their strong run towards the end of the year. Just released NZTA registration data shows for November there were 8,518 new vehicle registrations which was up 17.1% (1,253 units) on the same month last year (7,328 units). Passenger car registrations were up 14.9% (840 units) on November 2011 (6,484 verse 5,644), with commercial vehicles up 24.5% (413 units – 2,097 verse 1,684).

Year to date the new vehicle industry is running 19% (14,880 units) ahead of 2011 (93,044 verse 78,164).

Our goal of breaking the 100,000 unit bracket now looks achievable said Perry Kerr, Chief Executive Officer of the Motor Industry Association. “Analysing the various segments for November the SUV market continues to dominate taking 28% (2,416 units) of total new vehicle registrations, followed by the small segment with 20% (1,686 units) with the light commercial utility market accounting for 16% (1,369) of total registrations” he said.

Toyota retained its clear lead on the market with 1,190 passenger car registrations, followed by Holden with 673 and Hyundai moving into third position with 624 sales. For commercial vehicles Toyota sold 578 vehicles, followed by Nissan with 253 and Ford 231.

The top three selling passenger cars for November were the Toyota Corolla (462), the Holden Captiva (319) and the Toyota Yaris (267). In the commercial segment the Toyota Hilux held onto number one spot with 350 units followed by the Nissan Navara with 247 and the Toyota Hilux 199.
