New car registrations in the United Kingdom were up 28% year-on-year to 186,128 units in June of 2021, artificially lifted through comparison with June 2020, when the UK began to emerge from the first pandemic lockdown and showrooms in England opened up at the beginning of the month. All vehicle sizes saw growth in June, with the strongest seen in the mini segment, which had been relatively weak for several months. Superminis were the most popular car class, accounting for 34.1% of registrations, followed by lower medium (26.8%) and dual purpose (24.5%). Compared with the previous decade average, however, monthly registrations were down 16.4%, while total registrations for Q2 2021 fell short of industry expectations by around 9,000 units partly as the ongoing global semiconductor shortage acted as a limiting factor on supply. As a result, overall registrations for the first half of the year are down 26.8%. source: The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders Limited (SMMT)
