Dealer numbers static
The number of dealers in New Zealand did not change over the past month and stood at 3,020 at the end of June, according to figures from the Motor Vehicle Traders Register (MVTR).
This was the same number as at the end of May but it was 63 lower than the 3,083 traders recorded at the same stage last year.
Dealer numbers have largely been in decline since hitting a high of 3,536 in November 2017.
The MVTR holds essential information about registered traders and their businesses. It is operated by Trading Standards, a business unit of the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment.
