June 2013 new car registration figures: New car registrations were up 13.4% in June according to the latest figures released today by the SMMT.
214,957 cars were registered in the month, with the market 13.4% or 25,443 units up on June 2012 (which was up 3.5% (or 6,389 units) on June 2011).
“Boosted by consistently strong private demand and further growth in June, half-year new car registrations have topped the one million mark,” said Mike Baunton, SMMT Interim Chief Executive. “June secured the 16th month of consecutive growth, a clear indicator that manufacturers and dealers are delivering desirable new products with tangible cost savings from the latest fuel-efficient technology coupled to a wide variety of competitive finance offers. While there are still potential challenges ahead, recent robust growth suggests that the market is on course to perform well ahead of 2012 levels.”
