"Reacting to SMMT's latest new UK car registration figures this week, Chief Executive Mike Hawes warned:" The automotive industry has shown remarkable resilience during a torrid year, but this is not a turnaround ...

As this infographic shows, while much more petrol and diesel vehicles are still being sold, demand has decreased by 21% and 38% compared to 2019, respectively.
