  • Registrations: down 0.5% in May and up 5.8% to 396,368 for the rolling year
  • Trucks: Up 23.1% in May and 25.1% to 57,357 for the rolling year
  • Vans: Down 4.0% for the month and up 3.1% to 339,011 for the rolling year

“Bouyant truck registrations continue in 2008 and strong order books suggest the trend is firm for the year.” said Paul Everitt, SMMT chief executive. “Van registrations over the year to May are up too, though more modestly, as volumes are already at record levels. We expect these order and registration trends to hold over the next quarter.”
