New Zealand motor vehicle registration statistics

Published: 02 2014

The NZ Transport Agency produces a wide range of statistics on motor vehicles registered in New Zealand, including information on makes, models, vehicle types, domiciles, weights, cc ratings, motive power and many other categories.

Key statistics subscriptions

Our information analysts can provide more up-to-date, specific data on a monthly basis. A fee of $57.50 (inc GST) is payable for a 12 month subscription for each standard report. See below for a list of commonly requested tables.

Custom statistics

We also offer a customised statistics service - prices range from no charge for simple questions to a fee for more complex information requests. For a free, no-obligation quote, contact us at info@nzta.govt.nz.

Please note that we supply summarised statistical information only. We do not provide vehicle lists for marketing purposes or information about individual vehicles.

Note: We cannot search for individual vehicle information using a specific make or model as the search criteria. Under Section 236 of the Land Transport 1998, you must supply the registration plate number or Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) relating to a specific vehicle. For further information about accessing individual vehicle information, see Requesting motor vehicle register information.
