New Zealand May 2011: Toyota Hilux leads the way

June 7th, 2011

Toyota Hilux

Like in neighbour Australia, passenger car sales in New Zealand are hit by stock shortages due to the Japan earthquake and are down 2% at 4,535 units. Conversely, light commercials are up 13% at 2,028, helped by a strong sales push surrounding Fieldays, the ‘largest agricultural event in the Southern Hemisphere’, set for mid-June.

In this context the Toyota Hilux jumps to the top of the queue with an imposing 450 sales and 6.9% of the overall market and should also take the lead year-to-date at 1,727 units and 5%. The Nissan Navara takes the 2nd spot with 337 sales (5.1%), followed by the Suzuki Swift (4.4%) and Ford Ranger (3.2%).
