New Zealand: Car Market Report. All Brands and Best-selling 25 Models.

Accordingly with data released by M.I.A., the New Zealand Motor Industry Association, in October total light passenger vehicles sold were 10.388, up a spectacular 24.1%, the 24rd year-on-year raising month in a string. Year to date sales were 103.244, up 13.5% from last year.

Passenger car sales YTD were up 7.5% on the same period last year with 7.453 new cars sold in November, the highest November monthly registrations since 1984. Commercial registrations are a whopping 28% ahead over the same year to date period in 2012.
