Published 06/10/2014 00:00:00 in Press Releases

“The confidence in economic upturn for businesses buying commercial vehicles in September brings welcoming news to the truck and van sector”, said Sue Robinson, Director of the National Franchised Dealers Association which represents commercial vehicle and franchised car retailers across the UK, commenting on the SMMT’s van and truck registration figures.

September CV registrations up 10.8% to 54,497 units; 269,456 commercial vehicles registered so far this year, up 12.6%. Van market continues to drive growth; up 18.1% year-to-date to 242,071, and 14.1% in September to 49,123 units.

Truck registrations fell by 12.3% in September, continuing trend for the year-to-date – down 20.3%. Rolling year totals remain strong due to the pre-Euro-6 rush in late 2013.

Robinson continued, “It is expected that the truck market will remain buoyant for the remainder of 2014.”
