United Kingdom Car Registrations  1962-2018 | Data | Chart | Calendar

New car registrations in the UK slumped 20.5 percent from a year earlier to 338,834 units in September 2018, as new testing requirements continued to affect supply and distort the market. Diesel registrations posted the largest drop (-42.5 percent to 98,191 units), followed by petrol sales (-6.7 percent to 217,136 units). On the other hand, demand for the alternatively fueled vehicle segment, such as hybrids or battery vehicles, rose 3.9 percent to 23,507 units. Across the market, private demand fell 20.1 percent to 162,972 units; fleet sales went down 22.4 percent to 155,417 vehicles; and business registrations decreased 6.3 percent to 20,445 units. Year-to-date, new car sales fell 7.5 percent to 1.91 million units as the market responded to a drop in consumer and business confidence and a raft of upheavals, from confusion over diesel policy to VED changes and, latterly, transition to the new WLTP emissions standards. Car Registrations in the United Kingdom averaged 153668.12 from 1962 until 2018, reaching an all time high of 562337 in March of 2017 and a record low of 33051 in July of 1992.
