eMaster Users Continue To Outstrip New Car Market Performance in Septemeber

eMaster recorded deals in September were again higher than the September market registrations published by the SMMT earlier this month. The eMaster year on year figure was up 4.6% against an overall September increase in registrations of 1.3%. Commenting FISC’s Chairman David Smith said, “Whilst 2019 has undoubtedly been a difficult year for new car registrations it is pleasing to see that once again eMaster users continue to buck the trend. This is the ninth consecutive month that eMaster recorded sales have outstripped the market.  It’s also noteworthy that eMaster driven used car sales showed an even bigger increase of 15.7% when compared against September 2018.  Whether it’s new or used cars, motorcycles or vans, eMaster works”

Commenting on the September market Mike Hawes, SMMT Chief Executive, said, “September’s modest growth belies the ongoing downward trend we’ve seen over the past 30 months. We expected to see a more significant increase in September, similar to those seen in France, Germany, Italy and Spain, given the negative effect WLTP had on all European markets last year. Instead, consumer confidence is being undermined by political and economic uncertainty. We need to restore stability to the market which means avoiding a ‘no deal’ Brexit and, moreover, agreeing a future relationship with the EU that avoids tariffs and barriers that could increase prices and reduce buyer choice.”
