2002 Car Sales New Zealand By Model: Top 50

A series of articles on the top 50 models in New Zealand from 2001 to the present.


The Darling of the Fleet Sector in NZ 

In 2002, there was a slight shift toward European cars, but overall a stable (read boring) market. The top ten reduced combined share from 46.3% to 41.15%. Small car markets like this often move about quite a bit, but seeing as the market was heavily reliant on fleet purchases it is not surprising that not that much changed.

The leading car, the GM Commodore had dropped from 10.8% to 9.6%. The Corolla had gone from 6.0 to 6.7% share, a trend that would continue. Peugeot got two cars into the fifty, whereas it had none the year before. Two Mitsubishi models moved up into the top 10 while US brands went from seven to five models in the top 20.
