UK Auto Sales moderately positive waiting for BREXIT deadline.

UK Auto Sales

UK Auto Sales again strong in May despite fears for BREXIT. Albeit losing moderately, Ford was again the leader leading the models ranking with Fiesta and Focus. Land Rover was out of the top 10.

Market Outlook

The British economy decelerated slightly in Q1 and more detailed data confirmed that GDP expanded just 0.4% on a sequential basis. The slowdown was mainly due to a deterioration in the external sector’s contribution to overall growth as exports swung to a contraction.

In April, the sales volume increased timidly keeping to the positive trail that now has lasted five months in a row. However, sales recorded in this month are nowhere near the record achieved last month.

According to figures released by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (S.M.M.T.) the Car Passenger’s sold in May had been 203.585, up 2.5%, for a total of 1.164.870 units (+4.1%) registered year to date.

Down from the podium was BMW with 15.423 vehicles (+26.4%) followed by Audi with 13.970 (+1.2%), Mercedes with 13.721 (+20.8%), Nissan with 10.925 (-5.5%), Peugeot with 8.208 (+18.6%), Hyundai with 7.332 (+4.1%) and in 10th place Toyota with 7.144 (-2.1%).
