|NZ's number one selling car, the Corolla|
Cars: There is no surprise that the car is the largest segment but losing share. The 4-door is already unpopular here, with most of the sales hatchbacks and some wagons. It looks like it will soon not be the top segment.
|The top selling SUV, the RAV4|
SUVs: Kiwis love their versatility and higer driving position. Higher ground clearance is also sought after. This will soon be the top category.
|The best selling vehicle by far, the Ford Ranger. Just don't tell Toyota|
Pick-Ups: This is a vehicle that has gone from the farm to urban streets as well. Popular among tradesmen and for recreational purposes I'm surprised the growth isn't greater than it is for 2015. Double cab roominess and car like handling can be expected but the rear tray area hasn't grown with them. They are getting too large overall.
MPVs: The traditional MPV has never been a big seller in NZ and they make up about two thirds of sales here in this category. The other third probably mainly vans with seats as mentioned. Big growth here surprised.
