Record Run continues
TRT Recently Registered - June 2019

The New Zealand new truck market continued its record-breaking form in April. 

Four hundred trucks were registered for the month in the overall market (trucks with a GVM of 4.5 tonnes or more), taking the total sales for the first four months of the year to 1700, according to official NZ Transport Agency data.

Record start to the year
TRT Recently Registered - March 2019

After a disappointing end to last year’s heavy truck sales, which saw New Zealand’s new truck market narrowly fall short of its best-ever year, 2019 has seen the market rebound – with a recordbreaking January.

The 416 trucks (with a GVM of 4.5 tonnes-plus) registered in the first month of the new year was a spectacular 23.1% up on the 338 sales in January 2018 – and that was the previous alltime best.

And official NZ Transport Agency registration data shows that trailer registrations in January were also at record levels – the 111 sales edging the 105 previous best total for the month, back in 2015.
