Rolls Royces regis­ter big in Swan

Hills Gazette (Kalamunda) - - NEWS -

MANDURAH is the pas­sen­ger car cap­i­tal of Perth, with 52,772 ve­hi­cles reg­is­tered in the 6210 post­code, new Aus­tralian Bureau of Statis­tics data re­veals.

That is nearly 8000, or 17.7 per cent, more than the sec­ond-placed Wan­neroo post­code of 6065 (44,820 reg­is­tra­tions).

Can­ning Vale (6155) is the third-largest post­code for reg­is­tered cars at 34,360.

The top two sug­gest the north­ern and south­ern tips of greater metropoli­tan Perth can­not rely on pub­lic trans­port and opt for their ve­hi­cles much more than other Perth res­i­dents.

The 2017 reg­is­tra­tions bro­ken down by post­code were re­leased to Com­mu­nity News this month as the ABS re­leased pre­lim­i­nary 2018 data that showed WA to­tal pas­sen­ger ve­hi­cle reg­is­tra­tions grew just 0.6 per cent in the year to June 30 to 1,602,966. To­tal WA mo­tor ve­hi­cle reg­is­tra­tions at June 30 were 2,231,564. Na­tion­ally there are 14,330,432 pas­sen­ger ve­hi­cles reg­is­tered and 19,173,279 ve­hi­cles.

Toy­ota is WA’s most pop­u­lar ve­hi­cle maker (321,780), as it is on the na­tional scene (2,891,291). Lo­cally, Holden lags in sec­ond place, with 195,738 ve­hi­cles reg­is­tered on our roads, but third-placed Hyundai is clos­ing fast (157,504).

While Toy­ota is also the most pop­u­lar man­u­fac­turer in Mandurah’s 6210 post­code, Holden is a close sec­ond at 8237 ve­hi­cles – a much tighter race than most other post­codes.

Ap­ple­cross and Can­ning Bridge (post­code 6153) is home to the Fer­rari (28), ahead of the 6011 post­code of Cottes­loe and Pep­per­mint Grove (16) and the 6020 post­code of Marmion, North Beach and Sor­rento.

There are more Rolls Royces in the 6009 post­code of Ned­lands and Dalkeith (18), ahead of 16 in the 6055 post­code (Caver­sham, Guild­ford, West Swan) and 13 in Herds­man and Os­borne Park (post­code 6017).

Ned­lands and Dalkeith is also the lead­ing home of the Porsche (211), Mercedes (1058) and Bent­ley (26).

But Ap­ple­cross and Can­ning Bridge (post­code 6153) have the most Maser­atis (24).
