Monthly registrations of new and ex-overseas commercial vehicles in New Zealand

Number of registrations
Registration is the process of adding a vehicle to the Motor Vehicle Register: a vehicle, whether new or used, must first be registered before it can be licensed to be used on the road.
Registration has been traditionally confused with licensing: registration is normally carried out only once in the lifetime of a vehicle, whereas licensing is generally renewed every six or twelve months.
New: vehicle has never been used
Ex-overseas: vehicle has been used before, but not in New Zealand
Cars: Passenger cars and vans
Motorcycles: Motorcycles and mopeds over 60 cc
Power cycles: Motorcycles and mopeds under 61 cc
Commercial vehicles: A commercial vehicle is a vehicle designed primarily for the carriage of goods or passengers in a commercial capacity. This group is made up of the following types: goods van/truck/utility; bus; motor caravan, and special purpose vehicle.
This dataset does not include vehicles that have been re-registered, or those assembled from scratch from unrelated component parts.
