NEW CAR REGISTRATIONS STABILISE IN JUNEBack

salesNew car registrations stabilised in June, however the market still reached a record first-half in 2016.

New car sales figures released today declined slightly by 0.8% with 255,766 units registered. On a positive note, the total market year-to-date is still up 3.2% with 1,420,636 units. Fleet registrations continued to drive the market with a 4.5% rise.

Growth was sustained across all fuel types. Diesel and petrol registrations have grown by 2.3% and 3.0% respectively year-to-date. Alternatively fuelled vehicles (AFVs) continued their extremely positive trend, being up 21.3% compared with the first six months of 2015. AFVs now account for 3.2% of the overall new car market

June’s car market results are in line with the majority of analysts’ forecasts, which have been revised following the referendum result.

Over the past few weeks, the NFDA has seen mixed messages coming from dealers and while physical footfall increased in June compared to June 2015, online activity seems to have declined. With consumer confidence falling post Brexit, we call upon the Treasury and the Bank of England to do all they can to stimulate consumer demand.

We currently import over a million cars a year and associated parts from the EU. We urge our politicians to swiftly negotiate a trade deal with the Union in order to safeguard a prosperous future for the motor retail industry.
