  • September CV registrations up 13.9 per cent to 48,185.
  • Year-to-date registrations (YTD) up 13.7 per cent to 276,184.
  • Light CVs up 15.8 per cent for the month and 15.0 per cent YTD
  • Trucks down 0.1 per cent in September, but up 7.2 per cent YTD.
  • Buses and coaches up 41.8 per cent and 9.1 per cent YTD.
  • September a key month, about 13.5 per cent of the final 2003 annual total.

‘Eight straight months business investment growth confirm confidence and transport investment,’ said Christopher Macgowan, SMMT chief executive. ‘September is an important month in the registrations calendar reflecting vehicle sales in late spring and early summer but giving an early indicator to the year-end total. In this case we expect the best annual total since 1989.’
