  • Another record year for van sales

    A record number of new vans and pick-ups hit British roads in 2016, according to the latest figures released by the Society of Motor Manufacturers & Traders.

    Some 375,687 new light commercials were registered in the year – the highest ever level and the fourth consecutive year of growth, despite a slight downturn in December.  The total includes 232,948 vans in the 2.5-3.5t segment, an increase on 2015 of 4.8%.

    “Another record year for light commercial vehicles is great news, even marginal growth of 1%, and underlines the fundamental strength of the sector,” Mike Hawes, the SMMT’s Chief Executive, said.  “To ensure future fleet investment and growth in this important market, buyers – and manufacturers – are looking for a strong economy and business environment.”
