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 Table contains a list of the top ten cars in all 12 months of 2021.
