Macclesfield, Cheshire (PRWEB UK) 6 September 2013
New car registrations in the UK have increased for the 18th consecutive month in August 2013 with a growth of 10.9% year-on-year.
This has seen 65,937 units sold in August and a sharp rise for private registrations and significant growth for alternatively-fuelled vehicles which are up by 41.4%.
There has now been a yearly total of 1,391,799 new car registrations, with the Ford Fiesta still standing as the most popular model with 75,418 units sold to date, followed in second and third spot by the Ford Focus and Vauxhall Corsa respectively.
Car Loan 4U Director Ryan Dignan, comments:
“It’s always encouraging to hear that new car registrations are on the rise, but for it to hit an 18th consecutive month is extremely pleasing news for the car industry in the UK.
“With a total of almost 1.4 million new cars sold so far this year and a 10.4% increase on the first eight months of 2012, it reads even better and it’s also good news to see that alternatively-fuelled vehicles have seen an improved uptake.
“With the new 63-plate change around the corner for September, hopefully sales of new cars will continue to rise.”
