UK Van sales bounce back
- Created: 09 September 2015
Despite a slight recession in van industry sales back in July the UK's commercial vehicle market accelerated in August.
After having dropped by one per cent in July, van registrations rose by 14.3 per cent in August alone, proving that the Chief Executive of the Society of Motor Manufacturers & Traders (SMMT) Mike Hawes' statement that, "Demand is still at a very high level" back in July was correct and that the dip was an anomaly.
Hawes also commented that, "With certainty now restored, fleet renewal patterns are returning to normal, buoyed by the continuing growth in demand for online deliveries." The continued rise in commercial vehicle registrations is showing a return to form and is expected to continue to show strong growth in the upcoming months.
