New Zealand Sales By Model : 2013

The Toyota Corolla top for the 6th year in a row

Data for car sales in New Zealand is not that easy to access. The private body Motor Industry Association MIA does a good job with monthly sales by brand, and a few model sales. However, nothing comes out during the year in any depth for sales by model.

A little into the following calendar year, the government department LTSA releases sales by model which is where this came from (a big thanks to them for that). It has to be refined to get it to this level, but hey I know you appreciate the time I took to get it to you in this form. No problem.

The top 60 appears below. The Corolla held onto the top spot for the 6th consecutive year and by some margin. The Suzuki Swift came in second but with less sales and a charging GM Commodore nearly took it. The new Rav4 jumped nine place and with the Yaris gave Toyota three of the top five. The Mazda CX5 leaped nine places as well and the VW Golf is now benefiting from having a sharper price. Three new models came to the market and managed to make the top 60.

The Can Am isn't a bird or a plane, but it's a car apparently
A few cars that didn't make the list. The Can AM Spider made 52 sales, the Chery J3 climbed from 54 to 159 sales, while the Fiat 500 went from 79 to 171 units. 16 Jaguar F-Types found new homes, and the Lexus IS range went from 100 to 203 sales. Six Mclaren MP4-12C models were picked up, while the same number of Vauxhall Vivaro seated vans were sold as passenger cars. I have thought the Vivaro would compliment the Holden range nicely here.

No Pick ups available?

Hello. Yes, pick ups are big sellers, but this is a car list and pick ups are classified as commercial vehicles. The LTSA classify them this way. The Hilux is one of the biggest sellers as is the Ford Ranger.
