Strap yourselves in, because new car vehicle sales in April took the ongoing upward climb to new heights!

Yes indeed everyone, figures published by the SMMT last month revealed a spring 5.1% surge in new car registrations pushing sales in April to 185,778 units – the highest we’ve seen in that month for a decade!

Figures released by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) underlined a robust new car market, with registrations up for the 38th consecutive month in April. Year-to-date registrations for 2015 are up 6.4% to 920,366.

Mike Hawes, SMMT Chief Executive, said, “Today’s figures highlight the current strength of consumer confidence, even at a time of such political uncertainty. We are confident that the UK’s new car market – so symbolic of economic mood – will continue to thrive, but long-term success will depend largely on economic and political stability in the months and years ahead. Whatever the outcome of today’s election, the next government must act quickly to uphold economic certainty and reassure consumers and markets.”
