Latest figures from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) show that for the month of July 2022, UK new car registrations fell -9.0%.
A total of 112,162 new cars were registered last month.
By now (I am quite sure) that you know the reasons for the decline –  ongoing global supply issues with semiconductor, Covid lockdowns in China manufacturing and a war in Ukraine.

Battery electric vehicles continue their growth with a 9.9% increase. 

The automotive sector has had another tough month and is drawing on its fundamental resilience during a third consecutive challenging year as the squeeze on supply bedevils deliveries. While order books are strong, we need a healthy market to ensure the sector delivers the carbon savings government ambitions demand. The next Prime Minister must create the conditions for economic growth, restore consumer confidence and support the transition to zero emission mobility.

Said Mike Hawes, SMMT Chief Executive
