UK car registrations fall for ninth straight month as demand for diesel plummets

163,541 vehicles were registered, down -11.2% year-on-year, driven by a significant fall in diesel demand.

The latest set of figures indicate that registrations of new cars have dropped by 5% in the 11 months of 2017, with just under 2.4 million new cars sold.

The data represents the eighth consecutive monthly fall in overall vehicle registrations, which are also down 5% on a year-to-date basis.

UK new car sales fell 11 percent in November - data

Just over 163,500 new cars were registered in November, down 11.2% against the same month past year as diesel sales fell 30.6%. Diesel sales were hit particularly hard, falling nearly a third year-on-year, while sales of petrol cars edged up by five per cent.

Private registrations were actually down by the smallest percentage, falling 5.1% in November.

"An eighth month of decline in the new auto market is a major concern, with falling business and consumer confidence exacerbated by ongoing anti-diesel messages from government", said Mike Hawes, the chief executive of the industry trade body.

"Diesel remains the right choice for many drivers, not least because of its fuel economy and lower Carbon dioxide emissions".

The industry has hit out at Chancellor Philip Hammond and the government for its "anti-diesel message" that it claims will "discourage drivers from trading in their older, more polluting cars".

"Penalising the latest, cleanest diesels is counterproductive and will have detrimental environmental and economic consequences".

Auburn will be making its 42 bowl appearance and will be playing in a January bowl game for the 24th time in school history. Auburn now holds a 4-1 record in the game, with its last appearance resulting in a 43-24 victory over Virginia in 2011.

The decline follows months of confusion and speculation about the government's air quality plans and its policies towards diesel cars. Meanwhile, demand for alternatively fuelled vehicles, which includes electric and hybrid engines, soared 33.1%. "Widespread confusion has hurt the market over the course of the year, so drivers need clear information about what charges or other restrictions both the latest, Euro 6 diesels, and older vehicles might face so they can make better informed auto buying decisions".
