SMMT forecast September new car sales to be about 330,000 units

ABOUT 330,000 new cars are forecasted to be registered in September with the introduction of the ‘62-plate’ change, according to the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT).


It calculates that motorists will spend around £4.95 billion on new cars in September, which will account for around 17% of 2012’s new car registrations.


September is the second biggest month for dealers across theUK, with the other plate-change month of March traditionally the busiest.


‘September is a significant month for theUKmotor industry and the wider economy. A strong month for new vehicle registrations will help put both on the right track,’ said Paul Everitt, SMMT chief executive.
