Dear Colleague,

The latest new passenger car registrations showed that the new car market declined by -4.1% in July. Pure electric vehicles saw an impressive growth of 158.1% despite the significant supply challenges affecting the sector. Positively, the light commercial vehicle market grew by 11%. Please a find a copy of the registration figures on our website at https://www.nfda-uk.co.uk/reports/statistics

The latest NAMA Market Attitude Survey showed that more than half of surveyed NAMA members expect conversion rates to improve in August. Overall, petrol and diesel vehicle values should remain steady, while a higher percentage than last month predict values of electric vehicles will increase. Please find more information in the news.
