UK Cars sales in September moderately up

UK Cars sales in September

UK Cars sales in September moderately up while the Brexit shock on business and consumer confidence is slowly fading out. While Ford, Vauxhall and Volkswagen struggle, premiums are gaining.

Market Outlook

A rebound in survey data in August following the downturn right after the EU referendum suggests that the Brexit shock on business and consumer confidence is slowly fading out. Helped by the weaker exchange rate, the manufacturing PMI hit its highest reading in August, reflecting expansion in both activity and new orders.

As far as the automotive industry, uncertain is the next future and it remains to be seen whether the sector is recovering the ground lost following the referendum or if the strong performance will continue.

In fact, according to figures released by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (S.M.M.T.) in September the car passenger’s sold had been 469.696, up 1.6%. 

Year to date September sales had been 2.150.495, up 2.6%.
