05 August 2004 #HGVs #Registrations #SMMT News

  • Rolling year total is 378,413, and continues to run at record levels.

    29,259 registrations for July beats last year’s record.
  • Growth rates of 3.0 per cent for July, 7.1 per cent for the year to July.
  • Heavy vans, 2.6 to 3.5t took 6.2 per cent of July’s increase.
  • Trucks down 3.3 per cent in July, up 1.1 per cent for the year to July.

    Bus & coaches up 14.9 per cent, but down 5.6 per cent for the year to July.

Christopher Macgowan, SMMT chief executive, said: ‘As we expected, the commercial vehicle sector remains very strong, with excellent monthly growth through the year to date. The sector is on target to break the annual record at the year end, with vans setting the pace and today’s interest rate decision is unlikely to affect CV registrations this year.’
