New Zealand vehicle fleet open data sets

The New Zealand vehicle fleet open data provides a point-in-time ‘snapshot’ of all vehicles currently registered in New Zealand. The data relates to currently registered vehicles as recorded on the MVR and is updated monthly, so data is accurate as at the end of the month previous to when it’s accessed.
