05 December 2002 #HGVs #Registrations
  • CV registration growth maintained, up 3.4 per cent on November 2001
  • Eight out of 11 months this year see registrations growth
  • Second highest November registration total, only bettered by 1988’s 32,338
  • YTD CV registrations up 2.5 per cent at 299,527 vehicles
  • Light CV registrations up 1.4 per cent, and 4.5 per cent for YTD
  • October’s rebound in truck registration growth continues into November
  • November sees bus registration growth falter again.

‘CV registrations this November confirmed that the year’s firm growth trend remains intact.   This month the momentum swung to the heavier end, as trucks over 15t gvw did particularly well.   For the year as a whole it has been more typical to see heavy vans leading the way,’ said SMMT chief executive Christopher Macgowan.


‘With just December’s registrations to come, the new CV market in 2002 should see the year out in good form.   We think the year-end figure may be over 317,500, comfortably bigger than 2001,’ he added.
