Commercial Vehicle Market Continues Upward Trend In AprilBack

CVehiclesFigures released by the SMMT show that demand for light commercial vehicles was up 11.8% in April in the UK with 27,880 Light Commercial Vehicles (LCVs) registered last month.

The most relevant growth came again from the 2.5 – 3.5T sector with a 22.8% increase. 17,660 vehicles of this type were registered in this month against the 14,382 put on UK roads in April 2015.

Large vans (2.5-3.5T), which are typically used for online sales deliveries, continue to dominate the market and now represent 60% of all commercial vehicles in the UK.

With exception of pick-ups (+35.4%), all other sectors did not perform very well, but thanks to the huge demand for heavy vans, the overall market is up 3.3% year to date.

On the back of last year’s success, we expect the market to remain strong throughout the remainder of the year.
