While a welcome increase, overall sales in 2010 were still well below the levels achieved before the financial recession. Registration data released by the NZ Transport Agency shows that new vehicle mar- ket sales for the 2010 calen- dar year were up an encour- aging 10,405 units (15 percent) compared to 2009. The overall new vehicle market for December of 5,994 units was down by 1,432 units (19 percent) compared to November, but up 959 units (19 percent) compared to December 2009. New passenger car sales were up 7,625 units (14 percent) compared to 2009. In December sales of 4,548 units were down 23 percent compared to November, but up 575 (14 percent) ahead of December 2009. In 2010, Toyota led new car sales maintaining a dominant 20 percent share of the pass- enger market to again finish as leader. Ford followed with a 11 percent share heading off Holden who secured a 10 percent share for third. Toyota Corolla with 4880 units maintained its stranglehold in terms of indi- vidual model leadership for the year, clearly out- distancing second placed Suzuki Swift with 2724 units. Holden Commodore came in at third place with 2564 units followed not far behind by Ford Falcon with 2407 units. Mazda 3 rounded out the top five place with 2233 units. New commercial sales fin- ished the year with 18424, up 2780 units (18 percent) com- pared to 2009. MTA spokeswoman Ana Zandi says: 2010 could be said to be the year of replace- ment. During 2010, people and firms that had deferred vehicle replacements in 2009 were confronted with having no real choice other than to renew their ageing vehicles. This trend has largely mirrored overseas markets where there has been a cau- tious market recovery. The industry would be hard pressed to cope with another year like 2009 and we are optimistic that it will con- tinue a steady climb back to the levels of the middle part of the decade. The exception to this improving trend has been the motorcycle sector. For 2010, sales were down by 23 percent compared to 2009. In December, sales of 529 units were up by 49 units (10 percent) compared to Novem- ber 2010, but were down by 93 units (15 percent) com- pared to December 2009. The sector may see some recovery in 2011 if fuel prices continue to rise. No gas goer: The Tesla Roadster.
