Sales Of New Diesel Cars Remain In Free Fall In 2019

An article published on the This is MONEY.co.uk website has confirmed that diesel car sales are continuing to drop, whilst also that there is increased demand for petrol and electric vehicles. The headlines of the report are as follows:

  • UK diesel registrations down 20% year-on-year in January – 40% over 24 months
  • Petrol sales were 7.4% higher, while alternative fuel vehicle demand grew 26.3%
  • Private buyers bought more cars last month than in January 2018, though – slump in fleet and business registrations saw the market drop 1.6% in total
  • SMMT said government needs to do more to help incentive the purchase of the latest cleanest models
  • Experts warned that buyers had brought forward purchases ahead of Brexit

Commenting on the article for FISC, Andrew Binns Managing Director eMaster Worldwide Sales said “Sales generated by all our partners in our eMaster Customer Renewal Software also reflect the trends reported in January. There is a definite switch away from diesel to petrol and electric or hybrid vehicles.  eMaster is the ideal tool to deal with this change in buying habits as it allows them to easily and quickly interrogate their customer database and plan campaigns to match diesel users with other fuelled vehicles.  It’s worth noting however that used diesel vehicles don’t seem to be following the same trend at the moment and are performing well.”
