Ford Fiesta Is The No.1 Car In The UK For 2018

Thu 8th Mar 2018

The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) have released the latest sales figures for vehicles sold in 2018, and once again there’s a rise in purchases of alternatively fuelled vehicles.

With the UK government keen to get low-emission vehicles onto the roads, by the way of punishing those who drive less green cars, AFVs sales have gone up 7.2% in the last month.

Mike Hawes, the SMMT’s chief executive, said: “Although the new-car market has dipped, it remains at a good level despite the drop in demand for diesel. Consumers should be reassured, however, that the latest cars are the cleanest in history and can help address air-quality issues, which is why they're exempt from any restrictions.”

“Looking ahead to the crucial number-plate change month of March, we expect a further softening, given March 2017 was a record as registrations were pulled forward to avoid VED changes.”
