New Car Registrations Fell By 11.5% In January

According to Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders, new car registrations fell by 11.5% to 128,811 units in January. The decline was on par with SMMT’s forecast and, in part, reflects the loss of the Scrappage Incentive Scheme that boosted sales last year. In addition the rise in VAT to 20% may have contributed as well.

The best selling car in January was Ford Focus with 7,582 units, followed by Ford Fiesta (5,844) and Vauxhall Astra (4,510 units). Diesel cars oversold petrol cars this year compared to the same period in 2010. UK-built cars took a 12.9% share of the January market, unchanged from January 2010.

The table below show the registration figures for Great Britain, Northern Ireland, the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands in detail.
