June 2011 new car registration figures: New car registrations fell 6.2% in June according to the latest figures released today by the SMMT.
183,125 cars were registered in the month, with the market 6.2% or 12,101 units down on June 2010 while registrations over the first half of 2011 are down 7.1% to 1,029,638 units.
“June new car registrations continued to perform in line with industry expectations with robust demand in the fleet sector and a relatively weak retail market. The balance of demand makes this a tough time for vehicle manufacturers and their dealer networks,” said Paul Everitt, SMMT Chief Executive. “Slow, but steady economic growth in the second half of the year should see volumes increase, although the overall market is still expected to be around 1.93 million units.”
