New Car Sales in September 2007 Still Strong

Published Date: 9th Nov 2007

The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) has recently reported on new car sales for this September.

The month of September is traditionally a busy month for car sales and SMMT reported that this September was even better than expected with a total of 419,290 new car registrations.

One key growth area is in alternatively fuelled cars, which has shown a year-to-date jump in registrations of 82.1%. Christopher Macgowan, Chief Executive of SMMT, commented ‘With climate change issues at the forefront of everyone’s agenda, it is encouraging to note the rise in uptake of low-carbon vehicles’.

Although the Ford Focus is still the most popular car so far in 2007, it only came in at third place this September – following the Ford Fiesta in first place and the Vauxhall Astra in second. The best-selling diesel car in September was also a Ford – the new Ford Mondeo.
