The top selling cars in 2021

In 2021 the New Zealand government started subsidizing electric and hybrid vehicles. Despite this the top 10 best selling makes are the traditional internal combustion engine cars. Had the subsidy kicked in at the beginning of 2021, we might have seen Tesla make this list. Data Source

How we determine vehicle popularity

We make the assumption that registrations indicate popularity. Registrations in a single month may not accurately reflect a vehicle’s overall popularity but can accurately reflect popularity when considered over a period of a few months.
