New Zealand new cars market Mazda-2_2015

New Zealand new cars market was shy in the third quarter 2015. However the annual speed is still the best ever. Ford Ranger leadership is solid and followed by the Toyota’s Hilux and Corolla. Mazda shines.

Economic Outlook

New Zealand’s economy accelerated slightly in Q2 compared to the previous quarter but remained relatively weak due to a poor performance from the external sector. The fall in commodity prices that started in the second half of 2014 has put a strain on the key dairy industry and caused exports to plummet.

More recent data suggest that the economy might be picking up steam as business confidence partially recovered in September. In addition, four consecutive Global Dairy Trade auctions have driven a partial recovery in dairy prices and sent the NZD on an appreciating trend following its over-six-year low of 0.63 NZD per USD on 7 September.

Market Outlook

automotive sector in New Zealand is one of the most effervescent globally and despite this year is not sustained by a strong domestic economy is running towards a new all-time record volume following the one scored in the 2014.

Following the best first half in the industry history with sales at 64.642 units and up 9.2% from the 2014, in the third quarter the market started shy with July down 1.8% before recovering in August and September with sales respectively +7.5% and 3.3%. September figures were 12.231.

According to data released by M.I.A., the Motor Industry Association of New Zealand, total new light passengers vehicles sold in the first three-quarters of the 2015 had been 97.953, up 7.3% from the correspondent period last year.
