New Zealand Car Sales By Brand : 2000-04

The Corolla hatchback is a very popular car in NZ

New sales were being stifled by the flood of late model cars that were pouring into the country. Some complained (and still do) that these used cars have aged the fleet. The fact is they were low in mileage, and in good condition too. So the cars on the road are tidy and lasting well. What does it matter about statistics on fleet age?

Total new sales went up 30% for the years covered here and used gained nearly 33%. The top three were well ahead of the chasing pack, and Toyota was ahead most of the time. Peugeot was bouncing around, SEAT was tried and retired, while Škoda replaced them. BMW stopped importing MG Rover cars and that affected them. Korean Daewoo was struggling, and compatriot Ssangyong was reinvigorated.
