New car registrations drop by 35.5%

New car registrations are the lowest since 1959 SMMT report. 

The UK new car market declined by -35.5% in February as 51,312 cars were registered, thats 28,282 fewer units registered according to figures published today by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT). 

Plug-in vehicles continued to enjoy growth, with BEVs and PHEVs taking a combined 13.0% market share for the month, up from just 5.7% in February 2020. BEV uptake increased by 40.2% to 3,516, and PHEVs by 52.1% to 3,131 as the industry continues to promote a broad range of lower-emission technologies for consumers. 

However, increasing uptake of these new technologies to the levels required by 2030 remains a mammoth task. This is a trend that we are seeing at MPH with a high percentage of enquiries and cars being ordered being electric or Hybrid.  A lot of this is been driven by low BIK for company car drivers and more people taking up salary sacrifice schemes. 

Diesel cars took the biggest hit with a drop of 61% from last year and only Electric vehicles increasing in sales and now has a market share of 6.9%, Petrol currently has the biggest market share with 50.6%, this is down from 60.8% a year ago.
