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).
