27 CONSECUTIVE MONTHS OF GROWTH FOR UK CAR MARKET

Published 05/06/2014 00:00:00 in Press Releases

“With private vehicle registrations outperforming volumes once again this month, it is evident that consumer confidence in buying cars is on track for a successful year” said Sue Robinson, Director of the National Franchised Dealers Association (NFDA) which represents franchised car and commercial vehicle retailers across the UK, commenting on the SMMT’s new car registration figures.

New car sales figures, released today were up 7.7% - marking the 27th consecutive month of growth and the longest period of growth recorded since the 1980’s.

Robinson continued “The new products and services offered by dealers and manufacturers during 2014 have in no doubt influenced many consumers to buy. However competitive pricing and strong incentives remain important if the sales trend is to continue throughout the year.”
