Solid performance for new light commercial vehicle sector

The new van market in the UK achieved a steady performance in February, with registrations at the same level as this time last year, when the sector recorded a seven-year high.

According to the latest figures from the SMMT, 13,891 new light commercial vehicles were registered in February – traditionally one of the quietest months of the year.

Registrations of new vans below 2.0 tonnes and between 2.0-2.5 tonnes fell by 10.5% and 23.9% respectively in the month, but this was offset by an uplift of 6.2% in the 2.5-3.5T segment as demand for heavier vehicles continued to grow.
