Great Britain Autos sales surprisingly up in August

Great Britain Autos

Great Britain Autos sales surprisingly up in August ignoring pessimistic projections after Brexit. While all the others leaders were stable, Volkswagen dropped down over 25 percent.

Market Outlook

The UK’s economy is beginning to stabilize following June’s Brexit vote. Both yearly and monthly retail sales growth in July indicate that British consumers were unfazed by the EU referendum result. Despite these positive signs, the British economy is not yet in the clear.

In fact, the PMI and consumer confidence fell to multi-year lows in July and sales could drop in the future as the decline in confidence takes hold, though retail sales in July were strong.

In the recent research released by F2M Team on the country, the market is expected to start falling down since July in the range of 10%. You can find the research here. However, August data surprised with a moderate increase.

In fact, according to figures released by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (S.M.M.T.) the car passenger’s sold had been 80.748, up 2.1%. 

Year to date sales had been 1.659.891, up 1.6%.
