CAR REGISTRATIONS COME BACK STRONG IN NOVEMBER

Published 04/12/2015 00:00:00 in Press Releases

“It is extremely encouraging to see that the new car market was up 3.8% in November following the first decline in 44 months last month”, said Sue Robinson, Director of 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.

A total of 2,453,426 cars were registered in the year-to-date – an increase of 6.2% over the same period last year.

Robinson continued “Growth in the business fleet market indicated continued confidence in the economy.

“Sales of alternatively fuelled vehicles were also up in the month which in the light of the recent emissions means that consumers are considering environmental issues at higher levels.

“Competitive pricing, continued low interest rates and strong finance incentives have driven new car sales in 2015, and the NFDA expect the market to remain strong into the New Year.”
