New Car Sales Accelerating Ahead

Fri, 06 Dec 2013

IT’S GOOD news in the new car market as the latest figures from industry body the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) reveal registrations already outstripping those of 2012 with one month of the year still to go.

A total of 159,581 new cars were registered in November - a 7% rise on the figure for November 2012. Last month's figures took the year-so-far total to 2,111,819 - a 9.9% rise on the January-November 2012 total and already in excess of the year-end 2012 figure of 2.04 million.

As a result, sales for 2013 are on course to total around 2.25 million, which would make this year the best for new registrations since the pre-recession year of 2007, when sales reached 2.4 million.

These were the best-selling models in November:

1. Ford Fiesta

2. Ford Focus

3. Vauxhall Astra

4. Vauxhall Corsa

5. Volkswagen Golf

6. Vauxhall Insignia

7. Nissan Qashqai

8. Fiat 500

9. BMW 3 Series

10. Nissan Juke
