Contents >> Historical tables >> Transport - Motor vehicle registrations, Tasmania, 1924-25 to 2000-01

The ABS has discontinued the collection of new motor vehicle registrations data from the motor vehicle registration authorities in the states and territories. Hence the historical table below presents data only up to 2000-01.

The ABS now publishes statistics on sales of new motor vehicles. These sales statistics are based on data produced by the Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries. Please follow this link to view a historical table containing sales of new motor vehicle statistics from 1994-95 onwards.
