The UK new car registrations in March rose by 18.2%.
A total of 287,825 new cars were delivered resulting in an eighth consecutive month of growth.
(Above figures are according to the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders).
The Tesla Model Y was March’s best selling vehicle with a total of 8,123 new registrations.
Year to date…the Nissan Qashqai leads the way with the Nissan Juke second and the Vauxhall Corsa third.
March’s new plate month usually sets the tone for the year so this performance will give the industry and consumers greater confidence. With eight consecutive months of growth, the automotive industry is recovering, bucking wider trends and supporting economic growth. The best month ever for zero emission vehicles is reflective of increased consumer choice and improved availability but if EV market ambitions – and regulation – are to be met, infrastructure investment must catch up.
Said Mike Hawes, SMMT Chief Executive.
