November 2012 new car registration figures: New car registrations were up 11.3% in November according to the latest figures released today by the SMMT.
149,191 cars were registered in the month, with the market 11.3% or 15,164 units up on November 2011 (which was down 4.2% on November 2010). Year to date the market is up 5.4% to 1,921,052 units.
“New car registrations rose 11.3% in November, positioning the UK new car market as the second largest in Europe,” said Paul Everitt, SMMT Chief Executive. “The upward trend has been driven by private retail customers. The outlook for 2013 remains challenging, but vehicle manufacturers and their dealers will continue to work hard to attract motorists to their showrooms and deliver outstanding value.”
