·         New car registrations up 57.6% on weak 2008 to 158,082 units, in line with November 2007 volumes.
·         Year-to-date registrations down 8.8% at 1,844,063 units but full year market likely to exceed 1.975 million units.
·         Scrappage accounted for 21.6% of all new car registrations in November.
·         Business, fleet and private sales increased in the month with private up 141.2%.
“The increase in new car registrations in November reflects the positive impact of the Scrappage Incentive Scheme, customers avoiding the VAT increase in January and the very difficult conditions we experienced a year ago,” said Paul Everitt, SMMT chief executive. “SMMT is urging government to use its Pre-Budget Report to sustain the recovery and generate business confidence by stimulating demand in key parts of the new vehicle market.”
