VAN REGISTRATIONS INCREASE DURING JULY
Van registrations have been following the same path that car registrations have been heading on it seems, with increases seen once again in July.
The figures have been released by the society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders and show an increase of 10.2%, bringing the total number of van registrations to 18,913 units during July.
Even though the year to date figures of van registrations are still slightly less, van and truck sales are ahead compared to last year by 21.5%. This is a sign that the financial climate still has some way to go before van and car industry figures peaked back in the early 2000s.
These figures could easily increase once new Ford vans such as the Ford Transit Custom and Tourneo are released later in the year!
