New Zealand’s new truck market stayed consistent in July – the year-to-date sales at the end of the month continuing to lag 9.5% behind 2019’s benchmark.

The month saw 429 trucks with a GVM over 4.5 tonnes registered, taking the YTD total to 2801 – compared to 3096 in the last “normal” (ie pre-COVID) year.

In the trailer market, 134 July registrations carried the 2021 total to 855 – almost 16% behind 2018’s alltime best of 1017. 

In July’s overall truck market, FUSO did best with 88 registrations, compared to longtime market leader Isuzu’s 61 (and third-placed Hino’s 73).

That saw FUSO close Isuzu’s YTD lead down to 25 sales – 549 to 524. Year on year, FUSO increased its market share from 14.8% to 18.7%, while Isuzu dropped from 24.1% to 19.6%.

Hino (413/73) remained a clear third, well ahead of Scania (227/50), with Iveco (179/30), Mercedes-Benz (154/26), Kenworth (136/11) and Volvo (132/8) holding their places, in order behind. UD (100/17) and DAF (86/13) completed the top 10.

New Zealand’s new truck market stayed consistent in July – the year-to-date sales at the end of the month continuing to lag 9.5% behind 2019’s benchmark.

The month saw 429 trucks with a GVM over 4.5 tonnes registered, taking the YTD total to 2801 – compared to 3096 in the last “normal” (ie pre-COVID) year.

In the trailer market, 134 July registrations carried the 2021 total to 855 – almost 16% behind 2018’s alltime best of 1017. 

In July’s overall truck market, FUSO did best with 88 registrations, compared to longtime market leader Isuzu’s 61 (and third-placed Hino’s 73).

That saw FUSO close Isuzu’s YTD lead down to 25 sales – 549 to 524. Year on year, FUSO increased its market share from 14.8% to 18.7%, while Isuzu dropped from 24.1% to 19.6%.

Hino (413/73) remained a clear third, well ahead of Scania (227/50), with Iveco (179/30), Mercedes-Benz (154/26), Kenworth (136/11) and Volvo (132/8) holding their places, in order behind. UD (100/17) and DAF (86/13) completed the top 10. 

In the 3.5-4.5t GVM crossover segment, Fiat reached 247 registrations YTD by adding 31 for the month. Its nearest competitor, Volkswagen (81/8), had less than a third of its YTD sales. Mercedes-Benz (43/10) was third. 

In the 4.5-7.5t category, FUSO (261/46) increased its lead on second-placed Isuzu (209/24). Hino (100/18) was third, ahead of Mercedes-Benz (85/10) and Iveco (84/17). Foton (45/15) overtook Hyundai (41/4) for sixth, followed by Fiat (22/5) and Volkswagen (15/4).

In the 7.5-15t segment, clear YTD leader Isuzu (223/26) was just pipped for the month by Hino (134/27), but remained unchallenged in terms of total 2021 registrations. FUSO (112/18) stayed in third place, well ahead of Foton (37/8), and Iveco (26/2). Hyundai (9/1) edged ahead of UD (8/0), followed by Mercedes-Benz (5/0), DAF and Scania (both 1/0).

In the 15-20.5t segment, Hino (52/5) led FUSO (38/5), UD (19/4), Iveco (11/0), Scania (10/0), Mercedes-Benz (8/1), Isuzu (7/0), MAN (5/2),  DAF (3/0), and Freightliner (2/0).

In the tiny 20.5-23t segment, the only brand to add to its YTD total was Hino (11/3), moving up to first-equal with Isuzu (11/0). FUSO (7/0), Scania and Volvo (both 2/0), and Freightliner (1/0) obviously remained unchanged.

In the premium 23t to maximum GVM division, Scania (214/50) further increased its lead, while Kenworth (136/11) retained second ahead of Volvo (130/8) and Hino (116/20). FUSO (106/19) overtook Isuzu (99/11) to regain the fifth spot. 

DAF (82/13), UD (73/13), Iveco (58/11) and Mercedes-Benz (56/15) all retained their places in completing the top 10.

In the trailer market there was no change in the order of the first three – YTD leader Patchell (121/13) extending its lead on second-placed Fruehauf (85/9). Third-placed Domett (70/17) was the best performer for the month, while Roadmaster (51/6) joined MTE (51/5) in fourth-equal.

TMC (47/5) was sixth, ahead of Transport Trailers (45/9), Freighter (42/10) and Transfleet (31/5), while CWS (26/6) displaced TES (24/4) for 10th.
