Car shipping to New Zealand: June Report

Posted by Morgane Orsini on 26 July 2016 | Comments

The number of used vehicles imported in New Zealand has increased gradually in June by 8.09%, reaching a total of 13,639 units. These have been the best June import figures within the last three years.

This boost in the market was due to an increase by 7.9% in the number of used cars from Japan last month, compared to May. Japan supplied a total of 12,838 used vehicles in June – dominating the market with a share of 96%.

Singapore was placed 3rd in the top 6 importers of used car in New Zealand, and USA achieved the 4th place. With a total of 143 exported vehicles in June, Singapore showed an increase of 44% compared to May.

Australia has maintained the 2nd place in the imported used passenger vehicles ranking. A slight increase last month in its volume of vehicles supplied to New Zealand helped Australia to enjoy a market share of 2.3%

UK used vehicle imported into New Zealand stepped back 1 unit in June. However, car dealers in New Zealand believe that the number of the UK cars imported in the country will increase in the next couple of months. With the Brexit’s impact on the exchange rates, numbers are expected to change for the better.

      

“We will see more Volkswagen Crafter and Mercedes-Benz Sprinters” stated Mark Lewis from City Motors Group in Penrose.
