The U.K. new car market for November was down by -3% according to the figures from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT).

158,639 new cars were registered last month.
Demand for petrol vehicles grew 3.5% and alternatively fuelled vehicles rose 24.6%.
Year-to-date more than 2.2 million new cars have been registered.

Mike Hawes, SMMT Chief Executive, said

“Model and regulatory changes combined with falling consumer confidence conspired to affect supply and demand in November. The good news is that, as supply constraints ease, and new exciting models come on sale in the months ahead, buyers can look forward to a wide choice of cutting-edge petrol, diesel and electrified cars. It’s now critical that a Brexit deal is secured to boost consumer confidence and provide a stimulus to the new car market as we enter the New Year”.
