UK passenger car sales decrease 24.3% in June
According to the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) on July 5, UK passenger car sales decreased 24.3% to 140,958 units in June 2022. Year-to-date sales decreased 11.9% with 802,079 cars registered in the first six months of 2022. Ongoing challenges in component supply, exacerbated by restrictions in China, hamper industry’s ability to fulfil demand.
June sales for VW decreased 40.1% to 11,660 units (8.3% market share) while Vauxhall decreased 1.6% to 9,966 units (7.1% market share).
Ford decreased 30.6% to 9,879 units (7.0% market share).
BMW sales decreased 33.5% to 9,467 units (6.7% share) and Kia sales increased 0.5% to 9,218 units (6.5% share).
The best-selling cars in June 2022 were Vauxhall Corsa (5,014 units), Tesla Model Y (4,194 units), MINI (3,055 units), Nissan Qashqai (2,987 units) and VW Golf (2,965 units).
Compared to last June, gasoline-engine car sales decreased 28.2% to 62,005 units (44.0% share), diesel-engine car sales decreased 46.7% to 8,003 units (5.7% share), EV increased 14.6% to 22,737 units (16.1% share), PHEV decreased 36.5% to 7,714 units (5.5% share), HEV decreased 7.3% to 14,978 units (10.6% share).
In June, private car sales decreased 21.7% to 69,453 units (49.3% share), fleet sales decreased 27.6% to 67,242 units (47.7% share), and businesses sales decreased 5.3% to 4,263 units (3.0% share).
Sales of all vans to 3.5 tons decreased 23.0% to 26,443 units, sales of trucks between 3.5 and 6.0 tons decreased 17.1% to 520 units while sales of taxis increased 6.7% to 128 units in June.
Mike Hawes, CEO of SMMT, said, “the semiconductor shortage is stifling the new car market even more than last year’s lockdown. Electric vehicle demand continues to be the one bright spot, as more electric cars than ever take to the road, but while this growth is welcome it is not yet enough to offset weak overall volumes, which has huge implications for fleet renewal and our ability to meet overall carbon reduction targets. With motorists facing rising fuel costs, however, the switch to an electric car makes ever more sense and the industry is working hard to improve supply and prioritise deliveries of these new technologies given the savings they can afford drivers.”

Mike Hawes, CEO of SMMT, said, “In yet another challenging month for the new car market, the industry continues to battle ongoing global parts shortages, with growing battery electric vehicle uptake one of the few bright spots. To continue this momentum and drive a robust mass market for these vehicles, we need to ensure every buyer has the confidence to go electric. This requires an acceleration in the rollout of accessible charging infrastructure to match the increasing number of plug-in vehicles, as well as incentives for the purchase of new, cleaner and greener cars. Delivering on Net Zero means renewing the vehicles on our roads at pace but, with rising inflation and a squeeze on household incomes, this will be increasingly difficult unless businesses and private buyers have the confidence and encouragement to do so.”

Mike Hawes, CEO of SMMT, said, “The worldwide semiconductor shortage continues to drag down the market, with global geopolitical issues threatening to undermine both supply and demand in the coming months. Manufacturers are doing everything they can to deliver the latest low and zero emission vehicles, and those considering purchase should look to place their orders now to benefit from incentives, low interest rates and reduced running costs. Accelerating the transformation of the new car market and the carbon savings demanded of road transport in such difficult times requires not just the resolution of supply issues, however, but a broader package of measures that encourages customer demand and addresses obstacles, the biggest of which remains charging anxiety.”

The best-selling cars in March 2022 were Tesla Model Y (6,464 units), Tesla Model 3 (6,457 units), Vauxhall Corsa (5,515 units), Nissan Qashqai (5,401 units) and Hyundai Tucson (4,876 units).
Compared to last March, gasoline-engine car sales decreased 25.6% to 102,349 units (42.0% share), EV increased 78.7% to 39,315 units (16.1% share), HEV increased 28.4% to 27,737 units (11.4% share), PHEV decreased 7.5% to 16,037 units (6.6% share) and diesel-engine car sales decreased 55.2% to 13,736 units (5.6% share).
In March, private car sales increased 8.2% to 137,236 units (56.4% share), fleet sales decreased 34.4% to 99,338 units (40.8% share) and businesses sales increased 20.0% to 6,905 units (2.8% share).
Sales of all vans to 3.5 tons decreased 27.6% to 40,613 units, sales of trucks between 3.5 and 6.0 tons increased 1.0% to 611 units while Sales of taxis increased 193.3% to 305 units in March.
Mike Hawes, CEO of SMMT, said, “March is typically the biggest month of the year for the new car market, so this performance is deeply disappointing and lays bare the challenges ahead. While demand remains robust, this decline illustrates the severity of the global semiconductor shortage, as manufacturers strive to deliver the latest, lowest emission vehicles to eagerly awaiting customers. Placing orders now will be beneficial for those looking to take advantage of incentives and lower running costs for electric vehicles, especially as the Ukraine crisis could affect supply still further. With increasing household and business costs, government must do all it can to support consumers so that the growth of electric vehicles can be sustained and the UK’s ambitious net zero timetable delivered.”

UK passenger car sales increase 15.0% in February
According to the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) on March 4, UK passenger car sales increased 15.0% to 58,994 units in February 2022.

Kia sales increased 32.1% to 3,795 units (6.4% share) and Toyota sales increased 55.9% to 3,675 units (6.2% share).
The best-selling cars in February 2022 were Vauxhall Corsa (1,997 units), Mini (1,775 units), Vauxhall Mokka (1,465 units), Tesla Model Y (1,306 units) and Tesla Model 3 (1,275 units).
Compared to last February, gasoline-engine car sales decreased 10.5% to 23,952 units (40.6% share), diesel-engine car sales decreased 42% to 3,922 units (6.6% share), EV increased 196.3% to 10,417 units (17.7% share), PHEV increased 48.9% to 4,677 units (7.9% share), HEV increased 115.4% to 6,883 units (11.7% share).

Mike Hawes, CEO of SMMT, said, “Despite February’s traditional low registration numbers, consumers are switching to EVs in ever-increasing numbers. More than ever, infrastructure investment needs to accelerate to match this growth. Government must use its upcoming Spring Statement to enable this transition, continuing support for home and workplace charging, boosting public chargepoint rollout to tackle charging anxiety and, given the massive increase in energy prices, reducing VAT on public charging points. This will energise both consumer and business confidence and accelerate our switch to zero emission mobility.”

According to the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) on February 4, UK passenger car sales increased 27.5% to 115,087 units in January 2022.

BMW sales increased 19.7% to 8,380 units (7.3% share) and Toyota sales increased 77.9% to 8,030 units (7.0% share).

Mike Hawes, CEO of SMMT, said, “Given the lockdown-impacted January 2021, this month’s figures were always going to be an improvement but it is still reassuring to see a strengthening market. Once again it is electrified vehicles that are driving the growth, despite the ongoing headwinds of chip shortages, rising inflation and the cost-of-living squeeze. 2022 is off to a reasonable start, however, and with around 50 new electrified models due for release this year, customers will have an ever greater choice, which can only be good for our shared environmental ambitions.”
