UK new car sales edge up in November – preliminary data

LONDON (Reuters) – British new car registrations rose by roughly 1% year-on-year in November, according to preliminary industry data released on Monday.

However, the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) said registrations were about 31% below their pre-pandemic average.

Plug-in cars accounted for about 28% of the market and the SMMT called on the government to speed up its charging infrastructure rollout, saying there was one charger currently installed for every 52 new plug-in cars.

The SMMT will provide the final figures for the month at 0900 GMT.
