Upturn in November car market boosts record expectations
- November registrations rise 1.8 per cent to 172,094 units
- Year-to-November only 682 units behind 2003 level
- December market of 156,135 needed for record year
Commenting on the November new car market, SMMT chief executive, Christopher Macgowan said, ”November”s new car market was the second largest on record, boosting registrations towards a fourth consecutive record annual total. While the December market is difficult to predict, 156,135 new cars would see another record total. With Christmas coming, it remains to be seen if enough people have a new car on their gift list.”
