Welcome note from Sue RobinsonBack

sue-robinsonDear Colleague,

New car registrations show that the market rose 1.4% in October with a total 180,168 units.  Positively, the market is still 2.5% higher than last year with a total of 2,330,663 units already registered. The light commercial vehicle market has performed strongly so far in 2016, although October saw a fall back in demand. If you would like to receive a copy of the registration figures, please email louise.woods@rmif.co.uk.
