§         Van registrations in 2007 up 3.2% to a record 337,741 units.

§         Trucks down 8.7% to 50,747 but with very strong demand.

§         Strong order books suggest good registration figures for 2008.


December’s registrations completed another excellent year for the UK’s van and truck sectors said Paul Everitt, the SMMT’s new chief executive.   Registrations for year were up 1.5% and for the month, up 6.6%.   We saw a record 337,741 van registrations and trucks again made strong gains, as expected.   Demand for vans remains very strong, focused on heavy models.   Overall, strong order books suggest buoyant commercial vehicle registration figures for many months to come, from what proves a solidly reliable business and economic indicator.
