Worst September for UK car sales this century

New UK car registrations fell 4.4% in September from a year earlier, according to the motor industry.

That made it the worst September this century in what is normally the industry’s second most important month.

There were just 328,041 new registrations in the month, said the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT).

The car sector has been hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic, which closed factories and showrooms.

September is normally second to March as the industry’s most important sales month, because licence plate changes typically prompt a spike in demand.

But the SMMT said last month saw the lowest volume in new cars since the current licence plate system began in 1999.

‘Challenging’ future

“During a torrid year, the automotive industry has demonstrated incredible resilience, but this is not a recovery,” said SMMT chief executive Mike Hawes.

UK new car market suffers worst September in two decades

The UK’s new car market suffered its worst September in two decades, as economic uncertainty hampered trading in the second busiest month in the dealership calendar.

Just 328,041 cars were registered in the month, the lowest since 1999, when the licence plate system was introduced that turned September and April into totemic sales months because of their new plates.

Sales were 4.4 per cent lower than a year earlier, a modest drop that masks the extent of the fall because September 2019’s sales were unusually low, according to figures from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders.

Last month’s figures were 15 per cent below the typical September average over the past decade, the SMMT said.

“This is not a recovery,” said Mike Hawes, SMMT chief executive. “Unless the pandemic is controlled and economy-wide consumer and business confidence rebuilt, the short-term future looks very challenging indeed.”
