March 2012 new car registration figures: New car registrations were up 1.8% in March according to the latest figures released today by the SMMT.

372,835 cars were registered in the month, with the market 1.8% or 6,374 units up on March 2011 (which was down 7.9% on March 2010).

“The important March new car market performed above expectations rising 1.8% to 372,835 units, boosted by the third consecutive month of retail growth. Domestic demand for new cars is showing signs of recovery with private buyers increasingly returning to take advantage of a wide range of excellent products and, this month, the new 12-plate,” said Paul Everitt, SMMT Chief Executive.
