Scania #1 in NZ for heavy trucks for fourth year running

In News1 MinutesBy NZ Trucking magazineJanuary 18, 2024

Scania New Zealand has achieved the number one position in market share for heavy trucks in 2023 for models with a GVM over 16,000kg.

It is the fourth year in a row the brand has secured the position in the heavy trucks division.

Director of sales, Deon Stephens, said being able to do so on the company’s 5th anniversary of operation in New Zealand is extremely satisfying.

“We want to thank and acknowledge all our Scania customers who made 2023 such a successful year for us. Capping off the year first in market share once again in this premiere and very competitive segment is a fantastic result,” he said

Scania’s market share of 20% represented 653 heavy trucks registered last year – 20% more (21.8%) than Scania’s heavy trucks registered in 2022.

“We are incredibly grateful for every customer that chooses Scania, as well as for the consistently hard work our team constantly puts in from Scania New Zealand,” Stephens said.

Even though Scania only sells and supplies trucks over 16,000kg, the company also still ranked among the top 5 brands in New Zealand for volume of all new trucks and buses sold over 3500kg last year.
