The UK new car market has declined for a third consecutive month with 243,454 new units registered in June, according to figures released by SMMT. Registrations fell at a slower pace than in the previous two months, by -4.8%, as demand continued to stabilise following a record first quarter and the subsequent market turbulence caused by the recent changes to Vehicle Excise Duty. The market is now more in line with 2017 forecasts.


The light commercial vehicle market (LCV) declined in May following a period of exceptionally strong demand. 26,982 new vans hit British roads in May, representing a fall of -5.3%.
