There were 39 million guest nights spent in short-term commercial accommodation in the year ended July 2017, an increase of 1.3 million on the previous July year, Stats NZ said today.

The month of July 2017 was relatively quiet, with a modest increase in guest nights of 1.4 percent compared with July 2016. Both international and domestic guest nights had small increases.

The July month caught the tail end of the Lions rugby tour with matches in Wellington and Auckland following eight matches in June.

"The effect of the Lions tour on international guest nights hasn't been as visible in July as it was in June," accommodation statistics manager Melissa McKenzie said. "As July last year was especially busy we didn't see as large an increase as we otherwise could have."



Motels benefited the most from the increase in international guest nights. International visitors spent 13.9 percent more nights in motels in July 2017 than in July 2016. Motel international guest nights have now been increasing for two years when compared with the same month of the previous year.

Of all the regions, guest nights increased the most in the Bay of Plenty, up 5.4 percent in July 2017 compared with July 2016. Auckland was notably flat, but this comes off July 2016 that was 8.4 percent higher than July 2015. Increases occurred in 9 of the 12 regional areas.

Wholesale stocks of cars, trucks, and parts in the June 2017 year rose at the fastest pace since 2008, Stats NZ said today.

The actual value of wholesale stocks of motor vehicle and parts held at 30 June 2017 was $2.1 billion, up $328 million (19 percent) when compared with that at 30 June 2016. The previous largest annual stock increase was in September 2008, up $337 million (24 percent) when compared with 30 September 2007.

“The latest annual increase for motor vehicle and parts coincides with the recent high record of car imports,” wholesale trade manager Sue Chapman said.

Overseas Merchandise Trade reported that imports of vehicles, parts, and accessories was up 21 percent ($396 million) in the June 2017 quarter when compared with the same quarter last year.



The biggest annual rundown in wholesale vehicle stocks came in 2009, after the global financial crisis, when they dropped more than $500 million.

When adjusted for seasonal effects, the motor vehicle and parts wholesale stocks were up $173 million (9.2 percent) from 31 March 2017.

Wholesale trade sales rise in June quarter

Wholesale trade sales rose 1.7 percent in the June quarter, recording its fifth consecutive quarterly rise.

"The June quarter's rise in total wholesaling was driven by basic material wholesaling and machinery and equipment wholesaling," Ms Chapman said.



The actual value of wholesale trade sales was $24.9 billion in the latest quarter, up $1.4 billion (6.0 percent) from the June 2016 quarter.

Overseas Trade Indexes reported the dairy export volume rose 19 percent, while the meat export volume rose 2.5 percent in the June 2017 quarter.

Sales values were also up 13 percent, reflecting increases in both meat and dairy product prices. Business Price Indexes reported a 3.4 percent rise in dairy product manufacturing output prices in the June 2017 quarter. Prices for meat and meat product manufacturing outputs rose 6.9 percent.



The volume of total manufacturing sales rose 1.0 percent in the June quarter, after a 0.2 percent fall in the March quarter.

Electronic card spending in retail industries fell 0.2 percent in August 2017 when adjusted for seasonal effects, Stats NZ said today. This follows a 0.6 percent fall in July 2017.

"This is the fourth consecutive monthly fall in retail card spending, which is mainly influenced by lower fuel prices over recent months," retail manager Sue Chapman said. "All the six retail industries showed only small changes, with movements less than $5 million compared with July."



Spending rose in four of the six retail industries. The largest movement was in the consumables industry, up $3.3 million (0.2 percent). The consumables industry includes grocery and liquor retailing.

Core retail spending (which excludes the vehicle-related industries) fell 0.2 percent in August 2017, after an unchanged July 2017.

Actual retail spending using electronic cards was $4.9 billion in August 2017, up $205 million (4.4 percent) from August 2016.

Values are only available at the national level, and are not adjusted for price changes.

Kia Boosts Picanto Range With SUV Variant

By Kia New Zealand


The Kia Picanto city car range will be boosted with the introduction of an SUV variant that delivers bold styling and more power from a turbocharged engine.

Unveiled at this month’s Frankfurt Motor Show, the all-new Picanto X-Line model further broadens the appeal of the range that was recently launched in New Zealand.

It goes on sale in Europe by the end of the year and Kia Motors New Zealand has confirmed the super compact SUV will go on sale here too but is yet to confirm a launch date.

Kia Motors New Zealand General Manager, Todd McDonald, says: “The X-Line is an exciting model and we’re very much looking forward to seeing it join our Picanto line-up.

“We’ve had a very positive response to the new Picanto since it went on sale here and the SUV styling of the X-Line adds another dimension. It’s very much on trend.”

Arguably the best looking mini car on the market, the completely re-designed Picanto recently entered the New Zealand markets with three models, beginning with the LX manual, priced from a recommended $18,490+ORC, an LX Auto ($18,990+ORC) and a sports-styled GT Line auto ($21,490+ORC). All are powered by a naturally aspirated 4-cylinder 1.2-litre petrol engine and feature Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) as standard.The new X-Line SUV spices up the Kia Picanto formula with a more rugged body design that is highlighted by contrasting colour packs, along with raised ground clearance (now 156mm, 15mm higher than the standard Picanto) to give the driver a clearer view of the road.

Incorporating Kia’s signature ‘tiger-nose’ grille, the X-Line boasts more imposing SUV-style bumpers with metal-look skid plates at the front and rear that give it a more confident and go-anywhere appearance. A unique grille and fog lamp surrounds are finished with lime green or silver highlights, while black cladding around the wheel arches enhances the visual effect of the raised ground clearance.

Under the bonnet, the new Picanto X-Line benefits from Kia’s 1.0-litre T-GDI (turbocharged gasoline direct injection) engine, making it the most powerful Picanto ever.

As well as offering high efficiency and low emissions, the lightweight nature of the new T-GDI engine perfectly suits the Picanto’s fun-to-drive character. The 1.0-litre T-GDI engine delivers 75kW (100hp) at 4,500 rpm and 172Nm of torque between 1,500 and 4,000 rpm. It’s also very frugal, capable of 4.5 L/100km in the combined New European Driving Cycle.

The Kia Picanto X-Line is fitted with many of the features available in other Picanto models, including 16-inch aluminium alloy wheels (GT Line), aluminium pedals, LED daytime running lights and fog lamps, keyless entry (GT Line), Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ for full smartphone integration. Like the Picanto GT Line, the Picanto X-Line is fitted as standard with a sporty D-cut steering wheel.
