Commenting on the figures Alan Nolan SIMI Director General said “As we approach the end of 2018 new vehicle registrations are in line with Industry projections. Our Industry has experienced a decline in new car registrations 8 months out of 11 so far in 2018 and the month of December will no doubt see a further fall back in new car registrations. The impact of Brexit and sterling weakness continues to drive used car imports to a level where the volume is impacting on the new car market. This challenging and uncertain trading environment is set to continue into 2019.”
