Industry fears a auto crash as diesel sales fall by 30%

Demand for new cars in United Kingdom fell for the eighth month in a row in November, according to figures by the Society for Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT).

In fact, private registrations only fell by a little over five per cent. Business registrations on the other fell 33.6 per cent, with fleet registrations declining 14.4 per cent.

Increases in demand for petrol and alternative fuel vehicles (AFV), with this latter including electric battery powered cars, failed to offset the heavy losses for diesel.

Samuel Tombs, chief United Kingdom economist at Pantheon Macroeconomics, suggested vehicle sales could rise 0.8% quarter-on-quarter in the final three months of the year, if they hold steady in December. Registrations fell across all body types expect specialist sports, which grew 6.7%.

Sales figures for November showed a general decline in new auto registrations, with the 163,541 cars sold being 11% down on the same period past year.

New auto registrations in Britain fell by around 11 percent in November, the eighth consecutive month that sales have declined, according to preliminary numbers from an industry body. The biggest declines were seen in the executive and mini segments, which decreased -22.2% and -19.8% respectively, while demand in the supermini segment contracted by -15.4%.

The change in the VED structure in April this year also led to a large number of cars, especially diesels with low Carbon dioxide ratings, being registered in the first four months of the year to take advantage of lower annual road tax.

Overall, the Ford Fiesta remained the bestselling vehicle of the year in November.

"Given fleet renewal is the fastest way to improve air quality, penalising the latest, cleanest diesels is counter-productive and will have detrimental environmental and economic consequences". The Volkswagen Golf was the second best-selling vehicle in November, followed by the MINI, the Ford Focus and the Nissan Qashqai.
