About the data

Data is from all vehicles entered in the NZ Motor Vehicle Register open data obtained from Waka Kotahi. It is not the size of the current fleet, as some vehicles may subsequently be cancelled or de-registered. Raw submodel names are inconsistent, so for the pie charts the data has been 'fixed' to show more meaningful submodel names.
