Dear Colleague,

The latest used car sales figures showed a -48.9% decline in Q2. This was a significant decline, however, these figures only cover April through to June, when dealerships were closed due to lockdown. It is expected that the figures for Q3 will not follow the same trend seen in Q2 as the used car market has performed strongly since dealerships across the UK have been able to re-open.

The third edition of the NFDA Dealer Re-opening Survey has now concluded. We would like to thank those who have taken the time complete the survey. The fourth edition will go live on Monday 31 August.

NFDA is your trade association and the voice of automotive retailers. If you require any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact our member helpline on 01788 538303.

Sue Robinson, NFDA Director
