New Zealand 2005: Commodore leads, Corolla up to #2

The Holden Commodore is the best-selling car in New Zealand again in 2005, but its sales drop 21% over 2004 to reach 5,851 and 7.5% market share. Still #3 at half year behind the Ford Falcon, the Toyota Corolla delivers an outstanding 2nd semester and finishes the year at #2 with 5,063 sales (+3%) and 6.5%.

In December, sales of the Corolla were higher than those of the Commodore and Falcon combined! The Ford Falcon drops to #3 with 4,563 sales (-19%) and 5.9% share. The Ford Territory is even more successful in New Zealand than in Australia: it holds an amazing 4th place for its first full year of sales with 2,414 units and 3.1% of the market.
