The British New Van Market Continues its Strong Surge

Registrations are climbing 6.2% in October

Year-to-date registration figures have climbed by 16.8% over 2014 and according the Society of Motor Manufacturers (SMMT). It is fuelled by increasing business confidence and the growing popularity of online shopping.

However, the commercial market as a whole dipped 2.9% in October mostly due by the drop of almost 32% in truck registration.

  • The 2.5 to 3.5-tonne sector was up 17.5%
  • The 2.0 to 2.5-tonne and sub-2.0-tonne dipped by 26.6% and 6.8%

The Top 3 brands of the van market are: Ford (26.75), Volkswagen (12%) and Vauxhall (11%).
