“New car registrations for the month of November decreased by 4% on the same month last year, while year to date the new car market remains 15% ahead of 2022 with 121,430 cars registered this year. Sales of commercials both Light (LCV) and Heavy Good Vehicles (HGVs), continue to remain subdued in November, however they are ahead year to date.

Despite a decline in November new car registrations, the market share of battery electric cars continued to rise, with all counties seeing an increase in electric vehicle registrations. The number of electric cars sold in the month are double that of Diesel and Petrol cars. Private consumer sales dominate the EV market accounting for 75% of EV sales year to date, underlining the importance of continued incentives and supports into 2024.”
