The New Zealand new vehicle market reaches a new all-time high monthly volume in October at 16.670 units, smashing the previous all-time best of 15.985 established in June 2017 and up 7.6% year-on-year, leading to a YTD volume also at a record high 136.063, up 1.7% on the previous record established over the same period in 2017. Toyota (+12%) outpaces the market to reach a gargantuan 30% share vs. 19.3% YTD, posting its largest monthly volume ever in New Zealand at 4.998 units.

Holden (+7%) posts a performance in total contrast with its dismal figures in neighbouring Australia, even climbing up 3 spots on September to #2 overall. It distances Ford (-16%), Mazda (+14%) and Mitsubishi (+19%) with Volkswagen (+25%) and Nissan (+14%) also standing out in the Top 10. Haval (+200%), Bentley (+167%), Citroen (+158%), Alfa Romeo (+150%), Renault (+137%), Great Wall (+133%), Jeep (+106%), Skoda (+92%), LDV (+62%), Volvo (+46%) and Honda (+24%) also make waves. The Toyota Corolla (-2%) tops the models ranking with an ultra-dominant 10.5% share but is stuck at #3 YTD for now. At #2, the Toyota RAV4 (+108%) more than doubles its sales year-on-year thanks to rental and is now up to #4 YTD. The Ford Ranger (+3%) and Toyota Hilux (+6%) have timid months but remains in the YTD lead in this order, with the Mazda CX-5 (+40%), Holden Colorado (+29%) and Mitsubishi Triton (+23%) also in great shape in the Top 10.

This month the Suzuki Swift is the best-selling passenger car in NZ thanks to sales surging 80% on February 2017, with the Toyota Corolla (-26%) relegated to #8.
