New truck sales up on last year

January 30, 2020


New truck sales are continuing to climb indicating confidence in the industry.

There were a total of 5,314 total registered truck sales last year, up 150 from 2018 and 2% on 2017’s former record of 5,209 (source NZ Truck & Driver). ISUZU Trucks maintained its lead with the total number of 2019 sales at 1,261, hot on its heels was FUSO (794), followed by HINO (711).

CEO of Partners Finance & Lease, Francis Fitzgerald, said: “While the previously owned market is still strong, we’re certainly seeing growing demand for new trucks. Not only does it indicate business confidence but it reflects the ongoing sector-wide push for safer trucks on the road.

“Company owners are also enjoying the benefits of buying new, particularly if they have a growing fleet. These benefits can include reduced repairs and maintenance, the ability to attract good employees – drivers spend long hours in the seat so comfort is essential, reliable and trustworthy – customers know their products are in good hands and, importantly, owners can save time knowing exactly what you’re buying from the outset as opposed to spending hours searching for a similar used equivalent.”
