“It is extremely encouraging to see that the new car market continued on its upward trend in November with overall sales up 7%”, said Sue Robinson, Director of National Franchised Dealers Association (NFDA) which represents franchised car and commercial vehicle retailers across the UK, commenting on the SMMT’s new car registration figures.
New car sales figures, released today, show month on month sales were up 7% compared to November last year. Private registrations have risen 11.6%, whilst fleet sales increased by 3.4%.
Robinson continued “Consumer confidence continued to grow with November reporting its best performance since 2014.
“Competitive pricing and strong incentives have driven new car sales in 2013. Dealers have reported increased footfall in showrooms throughout the year and this continued in to November.
“The NFDA expect the market to remain strong into the New Year as consumer confidence continues to grow as the UK economy continues to recover.”
