United Kingdom Car Registrations  1962-2017 | Data | Chart | Calendar

New car registrations in the UK fell by 9.3 percent year-on-year to 426,170 in September 2017. It was the first time the important September market has fallen in six years, as economic and political uncertainty, and confusion over air quality plans led to a fall in consumer confidence. Demand for diesel cars dropped 21.7 percent to 170,732 units and that for petrol cars went down 1.2 percent to 232,810 units. Meanwhile, demand for the alternatively fueled vehicle segment, such as hybrids or battery vehicles, jumped 41 percent to 22,628 units. Across the market, private demand declined 8.8 percent to 204,055 units; fleet sales shrank 10.1 percent to 200,289 units; and business registrations decreased 5.2 percent to 21,826 units. Year-to-date, new car registrations dropped 3.9 percent to 2.07 million vehicles. September normally accounts for up to 20 percent of annual demand, making it highly likely that sales this year will be down for the first time since 2011. Car Registrations in the United Kingdom averaged 152859.43 Cars from 1962 until 2017, reaching an all time high of 562337 Cars in March of 2017 and a record low of 33051 Cars in July of 1992.
