10 January 2007 #HGVs #Registrations #SMMT News

  • A year of stability for total CV registrations, but big contrast by sector and months
  • 2006 truck and bus and coach figures stable and good against seven year average
  • 2006 van figures very strong with contrasting and evolving sector profiles

‘The mixed trends in new commercial vehicle registrations continued in December,’ said Christopher Macgowan, SMMT chief executive.’Regulatory changes distorted the heavy truck market in 2006 and will continue to affect it in 2007.

2006 was another very good year for heavier vans and pick-ups. Business confidence and strong competition drove demand up and accelerated changes across the light commercial vehicle market sector.’
