Mike Hawes, CEO of SMMT said "These are challenging times for the UK new car market, with another fall in November reflecting the current climate of uncertainty. It’s good news, however, to see registrations of electrified cars surging again, and 2020 will see manufacturers introduce plenty of new, exciting models to give buyers even more choice. Nevertheless, there is still a long way to go for these vehicles to become mainstream and, to grow uptake further, we need fiscal incentives, investment in charging infrastructure and a more confident consumer."

Mike Hawes, CEO of SMMT said "The growth in alternatively fuelled cars is very welcome, showing increasing buyer appetite for these new technologies. The overall market remains tough, however, with October now the year’s eighth month of decline and in need of an injection of confidence. Whether the general election delivers a ‘bounce’ to the economy remains to be seen but, with attractive deals and an ever-greater choice of low, ultra low and zero emission models arriving in the UK’s showrooms, consumers have every incentive to consider buying a new car."

UK passenger car sales increase 1.3% in September
According to the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) on October 4, UK passenger car sales increased 1.3% to 343,255 units in September 2019.
Year-to-date sales decreased 2.5%, with 1,862,271 cars registered in the first nine months of 2019.
September sales for Ford decreased 2.4% to 32,522 units (9.5% market share), Mercedes-Benz sales increased 0.8% to 30,398 units (8.9% share), while BMW sales decreased 0.4% to 27,834 units (8.1% share).
Vauxhall sales in September decreased 5.0% to 27,403 units (8.0% share) and VW sales increased 20.6% to 19,632 units (5.7% share).
Of the five most popular vehicles in September, 12,921 Vauxhall Corsas; 11,643 Ford Fiestas; 9,807 Mercedes-Benz A-Classes; 8,269 MINIs; and 7,987 Nissan Qashqais were sold.
Compared to last September, gasoline-engine car sales increased 4.5% to 224,828 units (65.5% share), diesel-engine car sales decreased by 20.3% to 77,510 units (22.6% share), and alternative fuel vehicle (AFV) sales increased 54.8% to 40,917 units (11.9% share).
In September, private car sales increased 0.1% to 163,173 units (47.5% share), fleet sales increased 8.6% to 168,850 units (49.2% share), and sales to businesses decreased 44.8% to 11,232 units (3.3% share).
Sales of all vans to 3.5 tons decreased 23.5% this September to 41,216 units.
Sales of trucks between 3.5 and 6.0 tons increased 10.0% to 1,165 units in September.
Sales of taxis increased 50.8% to 270 units in September.
Mike Hawes, CEO of SMMT said "September’s modest growth belies the ongoing downward trend we’ve seen over the past 30 months. We expected to see a more significant increase in September, similar to those seen in France, Germany, Italy and Spain, given the negative effect WLTP had on all European markets last year. Instead, consumer confidence is being undermined by political and economic uncertainty. We need to restore stability to the market which means avoiding a ‘no deal’ Brexit and, moreover, agreeing a future relationship with the EU that avoids tariffs and barriers that could increase prices and reduce buyer choice."

Sales of taxis increased 93.4% to 147 units in August.
Mike Hawes, CEO of SMMT said "August is typically the new car market’s quietest month so the huge increase in EV registrations is very visible but especially welcome. It’s great to see consumers respond to the massive industry investment made over many years. While this is encouraging, these figures also show the scale of the challenge ahead. It’s a long road to zero and while manufacturers can deliver the technology, they can’t dictate the pace of uptake. To support a smooth transition and deliver environmental gains now, we need a long-term government commitment to measures that give consumers confidence to invest in the latest technologies that best suit their needs."

UK passenger car sales decrease 4.1% in July
According to the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) on August 5, UK passenger car sales decreased 4.1% to 157,198 units in July 2019.

Of the five most popular vehicles in July, 5,646 Ford Fiestas; 4,288 Volkswagen Golfs; 4,047 Nissan Qashqais; 3,863 Ford Focuses; and 3,702 Mercedes-Benz A-Classes were sold.
Compared to last July, gasoline-engine car sales increased 2.6% to 103,441 units (65.8% share), diesel-engine car sales decreased by 22.1% to 40,651 units (25.9% share) and alternative fuel vehicle (AFV) sales increased 19.7% to 13,106 units (8.3% share).

Sales of taxis increased 79.8% to 223 units in July.
Mike Hawes, CEO of SMMT said "Despite yet another month of decline in the new car market, it’s encouraging to see substantial growth in zero emission vehicles. Thanks to manufacturers’ investment in these new technologies over many years, these cars are coming to market in greater numbers than ever before. If the UK is to meet its environmental ambitions, however, government must create the right conditions to drive uptake, including long-term incentives and investment in infrastructure. The fastest way to address air quality concerns is through fleet renewal so buyers need to be given the confidence to invest in the new, cleaner vehicles that best suit their driving needs, regardless of how they are powered."

Of the five most popular vehicles in June, 7,507 Ford Fiestas; 5,614 Vauxhall Corsas; 5,535 MINIs; 5,473 Volkswagen Golfs; and 5,450 Ford Focuses were sold.
Compared to last June, gasoline-engine car sales increased 3.0% to 149,360 units (66.9% share), diesel-engine car sales decreased by 20.5% to 58,982 units (26.4% share), and alternative fuel vehicle (AFV) sales decreased 4.4% to 15,079 units (6.7% share).

Sales of all vans to 3.5 tons increased 13.5% this June to 39,929 units.
Sales of trucks between 3.5 and 6.0 tons decreased 4.9% to 802 units in June.
Sales of taxis increased 65.5% to 197 units in June.
Mike Hawes, CEO of SMMT said "Another month of decline is worrying but the fact that sales of alternatively fuelled cars are going into reverse is a grave concern. Manufacturers have invested billions to bring these vehicles to market but their efforts are now being undermined by confusing policies and the premature removal of purchase incentives. If we are to see widespread uptake of these vehicles, which are an essential part of a smooth transition to zero emission transport, we need world-class, long-term incentives and substantial investment in infrastructure. Fleet renewal remains the quickest way to address environmental concerns today and consumers should have the confidence - and support - to choose the new car that best meets their driving needs, whatever the technology, secure in the knowledge that it is safer and cleaner than ever before."

Mike Hawes, CEO of SMMT said "Confusing policy messages and changes to incentives continue to affect consumer and business confidence, causing drivers to keep hold of their older, more polluting vehicles for longer. New cars are safer, cleaner and more advanced than ever and, with sophisticated safety, efficiency and comfort features as well as a host of attractive deals on offer, there has never been a better time to invest in a new car."

Mike Hawes, CEO of SMMT said "While it’s great to see buyers respond to the growing range of pure electric cars on offer, they still only represent a tiny fraction of the market and are just one of a number of technologies that will help us on the road to zero. Industry is working hard to deliver on this shared ambition, providing ever cleaner cars to suit every need. We need policies that help get the latest, cleanest vehicles on the road more quickly and support market transition for all drivers. This includes investment in infrastructure and long term incentives to make new technologies as affordable as possible."

UK passenger car sales decrease 3.4% in March
According to the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) on April 4, UK passenger car sales decreased 3.4% to 458,054 units in March 2019.

Mercedes-Benz sales in March increased 1.0% to 33,536 units (7.3% share) and BMW sales decreased 4.2% to 30,330 units (6.6% share).
Of the five most popular vehicles in March, 14,676 Ford Fiestas; 13,244 Vauxhall Corsas; 11,072 Volkswagen Golfs; 10,805 Mercedes-Benz A-Classes; and 10,701 Nissan Qashqais were sold.
Compared to last March, diesel-engine car sales decreased by 21.4% to 120,677 units (26.3% share), gasoline-engine car sales increased 5.1% to 312,075 units (68.1% share), and alternative fuel vehicle (AFV) sales increased 7.6% to 25,302 units (5.5% share).

Sales of taxis increased 142.5% to 257 units in March.
Mike Hawes, CEO of SMMT said "March is a key barometer for the new car market, so this fall is of clear concern. While manufacturers continue to invest in exciting models and cutting-edge tech, for the UK to reap the full benefits of these advances, we need a strong market that encourages the adoption of new technology. That means supportive policies, not least on vehicle taxation and incentives, to give buyers the confidence to invest in the new car that best meets their driving needs. Above all, we urgently need an end to the political and economic uncertainty by removing permanently the threat of a ‘no deal’ Brexit and agreeing a future relationship that avoids any additional friction that would increase costs and hence prices."

UK car passenger sales increase 1.4% in February
According to the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) on March 5, UK passenger car sales increased 1.4% to 81,969 units in February 2019.
February sales for Ford decreased 13.7% to 10,390 units (12.7% market share), Volkswagen sales increased 13.1% to 7,960 units (9.7% share), while BMW sales increased 1.9% to 6,870 units (8.4% share).
Mercedes-Benz sales in February were flat to 6,088 units (7.4% share) and Audi sales fell 16.8% to 5,112 units (6.2% share).
Of the five most popular vehicles in February, 3,399 Ford Fiestas; 2,537 Ford Focuses; 2,410 Volkswagen Golfs; 2,059 Mercedes-Benz A-Classes; and 1,512 Volkswagen Polos were sold.
Compared to last February, diesel-engine car sales decreased by 14.3% to 24,284 units (29.6% share), gasoline-engine car sales increased 8.3% to 53,164 units (64.9% share), and alternative fuel vehicle (AFV) sales increased 34.0% to 4,521 units (5.5% share).
In February, private car sales increased 4.3% to 36,799 units (44.9% share), fleet sales decreased 1.3% to 43,977 units (53.7% share), and sales to businesses increased 23.4% to 1,193 units (1.5% share).
Sales of all vans to 3.5 tons increased 1.8% this February to 14,384 units.
Sales of trucks between 3.5 and 6.0 tons increased 0.9% to 348 units in February.
Sales of taxis increased 2200.0% to 69 units in February.
Mike Hawes, CEO of SMMT said "It’s encouraging to see market growth in February, albeit marginal, especially for electrified models. Car makers have made huge commitments to bring to market an ever-increasing range of exciting zero and ultra low emission vehicles and give buyers greater choice. These cars still only account for a fraction of the overall market, however, so if the UK is to achieve its electrification ambitions, a world-class package of incentives and infrastructure is needed. The recent removal of the plug-in car grant from plug-in hybrids was a backward step and sends entirely the wrong message. Supportive, not punitive measures are needed, else ambitions will never be realised."

Sales of taxis increased 2325.0% to 97 units in January.
Mike Hawes, CEO of SMMT said "It’s encouraging to see car registrations in January broadly on par with a year ago as the latest high tech models and deals attracted buyers into showrooms. This, however, is still the fifth consecutive month of overall decline in the market. To restore momentum, we need supportive policies, not least on vehicle taxation, to encourage buyers to invest in new, cleaner vehicles that best suit their driving needs - from the latest petrols and diesels to an ever growing range of exciting electrified vehicles. This would be good for the environment and good for the industry and those who depend on it."
