Welcome note from Sue RobinsonBack

Dear colleague,

New Car Market

This week saw the new car market decline by -11.2% in November to 163,541 units. Year to date, new passenger car registrations are -5.0% lower than last year. Sales of alternative fuel vehicles rose substantially by 33.1%, while diesel decreased by -30.1%.  We highlighted to government that the recent increase in first registration tax of new diesel vehicles will affect the cleanest Euro 6 diesel cars. This sends the wrong message to many motorists that they should not buy a new diesel, but rather stay in their old car or buy a second hand, dirtier vehicle. If you would like to receive a copy of the registration figures, please email louise.woods@rmif.co.uk.

GDPR – contract remediation

We will be holding two additional GDPR workshops on Thursday 1 February and Friday 9 March at the Warwick Hilton. These will focus on the issue of contract remediation, one of the key elements of GDPR compliance. We will look at how to review third-party contracts, if you would like to attend please email louise.woods@rmif.co.uk .  We have also launched the NFDA GDPR helpline: for all your urgent queries, ring 01788 538 304. Please find out more below.

Meetings and events

This week, we held NFDA regional meetings in Warrington, York and Bristol. Next week, we will be in Cobham on Tuesday and Northampton on Thursday. GDPR, new and used car market as well as the relationship between retailers and manufacturers will be discussed. Please email louise.woods@rmif.co.uk to attend.

Following last year’s success, Driving Digital will be back on 8 February 2018. A number of keynote speakers will explore the implications of the digital world in the used car market and share with you innovative and practical ideas.
