The Ministry of Transport has released its Annual Vehicle Fleet Statistics, showing the size of New Zealand’s vehicle fleet, the number of vehicles per capita, vehicle kilometres travelled, and distance travelled per capita all growing during 2016.

 

“Over 3.6 million light vehicles are on New Zealand roads, with a record high of almost 307,000 light vehicles entering our fleet in 2016,” says Peter Mersi, Secretary for Transport.

 

“Once vehicles being scrapped are taken into account, the light vehicle fleet grew by over 146,000 vehicles, the highest annual growth rate for the last 15 years.

 

“There are now around 774 light vehicles per 1,000 people, the highest level ever.

 

“Vehicle kilometres travelled in 2016 increased by 4.6 per cent, to more than 45 billion kilometres.  Each New Zealander travelled on average 9,683 km, the highest since 2007.

 

“With the entry of so many new vehicles, New Zealand’s light petrol fleet is becoming more fuel-efficient, using on average half a litre less fuel to travel 100 kilometres in 2016 than in 2013.  The number of electric vehicles (including plug-ins) grew significantly from 964 in 2015 to 2,438 in 2016.  In 2000 there were only 51 electric vehicles in New Zealand.

 

“The average age of the light vehicle fleet has remained constant at 14 years, above the international average.

 

“These fleet statistics help transport planners, the vehicle industry, and others to understand emerging trends and to make sound decisions in a constantly evolving transport environment,” Mr Mersi says.

 

The Annual Vehicle Fleet Statistics are available on the Ministry website: http://www.transport.govt.nz/research/newzealandvehiclefleetstatistics/

Someone with the time needs to edit the wikipedia page on list of countries by vehicles per capita.

 

We've jumped 4 places from 8th to be 4th, behind San Marino, Monaco, and the US.
