August new car sales ‘encouraging’

06 September, 2012

New car sales figures released by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) today show month-on-month sales were up 0.1% compared to April last year, while the market increased by 3.3% year to date.

Sue Robinson, director of the RMI National Franchised Dealers Association (NFDA) said it is encouraging that the new car market remained stable in what is traditionally a low volume month for car sales.

“August is traditionally a small market as buyers wait for the plate change on September 1 before purchasing a new vehicle,” she said. “We anticipate consumers returning to the showrooms in the Autumn with consumers showing interest in value for money, easy to maintain and fuel-efficient vehicles.”
