2021 Annual fleet statistics

The ministry has developed a comprehensive set of Transport Indicators, which also include information on the motor vehicle fleet. The indicators provide national and, where possible, regional data for robust and consistent performance monitoring of the New Zealand transport sector. 

The annual fleet statistics provide information on New Zealand’s motor vehicle fleet by using the Government’s motor vehicle register (MVR) as a key source. The information contained in this publication will continue to be updated and published annually.  

The ministry released an open data tool and an accompanying insights brief for the 2021 update of the annual fleet statistics reporting. Please note that the open data tool has been optimised for a desktop/laptop screen rather than mobile devices.
