Year-to-date sales decreased 5.0%, with 2,388,144 cars registered in the first eleven months of 2017.
November sales for Ford decreased 17.5% to 18,095 units (11.1% market share) and Volkswagen sales decreased 2.6% to 13,985 units (8.6% share), while BMW sales decreased 16.6% to 12,781 units (7.8% share).
Audi sales in November decreased 6.5% to 12,077 units (7.4% share) and Mercedes-Benz sales increased 6.0% to 12,065 units (7.4% share).
Of the five most popular vehicles in November, 6,434 Ford Fiestas; 5,831 Volkswagen Golfs; 4,335 MINIs; 4,250 Ford Focuses; and 3,562 Nissan Qashqais were sold.
Compared to last November, gasoline-engine car sales increased by 5.0% to 92,944 units (56.8% share), diesel-engine car sales decreased 30.6% to 61,730 units (37.7% share), and alternative fuel vehicle (AFV) sales increased 33.1% to 8,867 units (5.4% share).
In November, private car sales decreased 5.1% to 74,065 units (45.3% share), fleet sales decreased 14.4% to 85,007 units (52.0% share), and sales to businesses decreased 33.6% to 4,469 units (2.7% share).
Sales of all vans to 3.5 tons decreased 11.1% this November to 26,486 units.
Sales of trucks between 3.5 and 6.0 tons decreased 26.5% to 478 units in November.
Sales of taxis were 227 units in November.
Mike Hawes, CEO of SMMT said "An eighth month of decline in the new car market is a major concern, with falling business and consumer confidence exacerbated by ongoing anti-diesel messages from government. Diesel remains the right choice for many drivers, not least because of its fuel economy and lower CO2 emissions. The decision to tax the latest low emission diesels is a step backwards and will only discourage drivers from trading in their older, more polluting cars. Given fleet renewal is the fastest way to improve air quality, penalising the latest, cleanest diesels is counterproductive and will have detrimental environmental and economic consequences."

Mike Hawes, CEO of SMMT said "Declining business and consumer confidence is undoubtedly affecting demand in the new car market but this is being compounded by confusion over government policy on diesel. Consumers need urgent reassurance that the latest, low emission diesel cars on sale will not face any bans, charges or other restrictions, anywhere in the UK. We urge the Government to use the forthcoming Autumn Budget to restore stability to the market, encouraging the purchase of the latest low emission vehicles as fleet renewal is the fastest and most effective way of addressing air quality concerns."

According to the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) release dated on October 5, UK car sales decreased 9.3% to 426,170 units in September 2017.

September sales for Ford decreased 19.1% to 39,696 units (9.3% market share) and Volkswagen sales increased 7.7% to 36,332 units (8.5% share), while BMW sales decreased 3.5% to 31,465 units (7.4% share).
Mercedes-Benz sales in September decreased 1.7% to 31,430 units (7.4% share) and Vauxhall sales decreased 25.5% to 31,058 units (7.3% share).
Of the five most popular vehicles in September, 13,499 Nissan Qashqais; 12,800 Volkswagen Golfs; 10,826 Ford Fiestas; 10,235 Ford Focuses; and 8,562 Vauxhall Corsas were sold.
Compared to last September, gasoline-engine car sales decreased by 1.2% to 232,810 units (54.6% share), diesel-engine car sales decreased 21.7% to 170,732 units (40.1% share), and alternative fuel vehicle (AFV) sales increased 41.0% to 22,628 units (5.3% share).
In September, private car sales decreased 8.8% to 204,055 units (47.9% share), fleet sales decreased 10.1% to 200,289 units (47.0% share), and sales to businesses decreased 5.2% to 21,826 units (5.1% share).
Sales of all vans to 3.5 tons decreased 4.2% this September to 57,368 units.
Sales of trucks between 3.5 and 6.0 tons decreased 20.9% to 909 units in September.
Sales of taxis were 198 units in September.
Mike Hawes, CEO of SMMT said "September is always a barometer of the health of the UK new car market so this decline will cause considerable concern. Business and political uncertainty is reducing buyer confidence, with consumers and businesses more likely to delay big ticket purchases. The confusion surrounding air quality plans has not helped, but consumers should be reassured that all the new diesel and petrol models on the market will not face any bans or additional charges. Manufacturers’ scrappage schemes are proving popular and such schemes are to be encouraged given fleet renewal is the best way to address environmental issues in our towns and cities."

Mike Hawes, CEO of SMMT said "The fall in consumer and business confidence is having a knock on effect on demand in the new car market and government must act quickly to provide concrete plans regarding Brexit. While it's encouraging to see record achievements for alternatively fuelled vehicles, consumers considering other fuel types will have undoubtedly been affected by the uncertainty surrounding the government's clean air plans.  It is important to remember that there are no plans to charge drivers using the latest Euro 6 models and no proposed bans for conventional petrol and diesel vehicles for some 23 years. The lower demand in recent months will inevitably mean competition from manufacturers will intensify and it will be a good opportunity for consumers to get a great deal on their next car, with many exciting new models launched in the coming months."

Sales of taxis were 121 units in June.
Mike Hawes, CEO of SMMT said "As forecast, demand for new cars has started to cool following five consecutive years of solid growth but the numbers are still strong and the first half of the year is the second biggest on record. Provided consumer and business confidence holds, we expect demand to remain at a similarly high level over the coming months. It’s encouraging to see alternatively fuelled vehicles experiencing rapid growth but adoption is still at a relatively low level and more long term incentives are required if this new generation of vehicles is to be a more common sight on British roads."
