Most countries of export have registered this month a lower number of exported vehicles to New Zealand.

Breakdown by country:

  • Japan is still dominating the market with a share of 93,6% and 10,548 units exported to New Zealand this July.
  • Australia comes second with 375 exported vehicles and a market share of 3.3%.
  • USA and Singapore have registered the same percentage of market share (1%) and similar number of supplied cars - 113 and 109 units respectively.
  • Only Great Britain has recorded a slight increase in the number of vehicles exported to New Zealand - July exports amounted to 75 units.

Andre Stevenson from Cashback Cars in Whangarei, NZ shared that after a long time importing vehicles from Japan he would like now to purchase electric cars from English speaking countries such as the UK.

"I'm prepared to pay a premium to get vehicles with English instructions” he says. “EV's can do so much and the drivers need to be able to understand what it can do, in order to get the best out of the car."
