SMMT: Sales increase for fleet industry in 2012

Date: 20 November 2012   |   Author: Jack Carfrae

The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders has announced a 4.5% increase in fleet sales in October.

The organisation also reported an increase of 12% in overall car registrations, which affirms the UK car market's strength in the face of the European downturn.

The figures also show that the UK car market has grown by 5% so far this year and has increased in volume in all but one month so far.

Paul Everitt, SMMT chief executive, said: "It is encouraging to see the alternatively-fuelled vehicle market performing strongly, up 13% so far this year.

"Although the alternatively-fuelled vehicle sector represents only a small share of the overall market, it is vital that Government sustains its consumer incentive programme and maximises the benefits available through the vehicle taxation system."
