New car registrations in the UK fell 2.9 percent year-on-year to 153,599 units in October of 2018, as model changes and backlogs at test houses conducting tough new WLTP emissions certification continued to cause shortages across some brands. Declines were seen in both private (-1 percent) and fleet (-5.2 percent) sectors. Meanwhile, continuing uncertainty over government policy on diesel saw demand for these new, low emission vehicles fall by a further -21.3 percent. On the other hand, registrations of petrol cars rose 7.1 percent, while the market for alternatively fuelled vehicles (AFVs) jumped 30.7 percent, supported by new models. Zero emission battery electric vehicles saw particularly impressive growth, up 86.9 percent, as 584 more people drove one home than in the same month last year. Year-to-date, new car registrations went down 7.2 percent over a year earlier. Car Registrations in the United Kingdom averaged 153668.01 from 1962 until 2018, reaching an all time high of 562337 in March of 2017 and a record low of 33051 in July of 1992.
