‘These figures show 2004 commercial vehicle registrations breaking all UK records,’ said Christopher Macgowan, SMMT chief executive. ‘2004 has been a terrific year for vans and trucks in the UK, with registrations breaking record after record. Importantly, a wide range of factors drive demand, meaning it is reassuringly durable. And encouragingly, order books are strong too, so 2005 will be another very good year.’
