uk car market remains healthy

“2016 has been an exceptional year for the retail motor industry with over 2.5 million new cars units registered in the year to date. The sector has performed well in November with 184,101 units registered. The steady growth benefits our members not only with sales, but also the increased demand for servicing and repair work for these vehicles”, 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 passenger car registrations rose 2.9% in November with 184,101 units. The UK new car market remains very strong year to date with a total of 2,514,764 units, 2.5% more than in 2015. Alternative fuelled vehicles grew by 25.1% to 6,663 units and now have a market share of 3.6%.
