Share

Richard Jones, the managing director of Black Horse, which is one of the UK's leading motor finance providers, said: 'These figures show the new auto market continues a trend of moving to a more sustainable position.

Diesel has been particularly hit this year, with registrations declining 16.1 percent between January and November, while petrol rose 3.1 percent in the same period.

Sales of new diesel cars were down 30.6 percent in November compared with 12 months earlier. Sales to fleet owners of more than 25 company cars or cars for rent fell by 14.4 per cent.

US Trade Deficit Widens More Than Expected To USD48.7 Billion In October
In October, the United States ran a surplus of $20.3 billion with the rest of the world in services such as banking and tourism. The US trade deficit in goods and services widened by $3.8bn to reach $48.7bn, according to the Department of Commerce.

Alternatively fuelled vehicles made a huge gain, though, growing by 33.1 per cent, while petrol cars saw a gain of five per cent.

The SMMT said that the decline follows months of confusion and speculation about the Government's air quality plans and its policies towards diesel cars.

Registrations of diesel cars in the United Kingdom were down by 30.6% in November, when the overall market declined for the eighth consecutive month.

Bullying continues after teen girl hangs herself
One family member alleged the school district was aware Avila had been bullied for years. "My daughter is a victim of bullying". Mr Avila said that although his daughter's smile could light up a room, he noticed something was off in the recent months.

Registrations fell by 11.2 per cent to 163,541.

The lobby group for United Kingdom carmakers said that while that decline drove overall sales 11% lower year on year, higher petrol vehicle sales helped offset that figure.

This is the eigth consecutive month of decline in United Kingdom vehicle sales, something which the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders has branded as a "major concern". "The decision to tax the latest low emission diesels is a step backwards and will only discourage drivers from trading in their older, more polluting cars", he added. "Given fleet renewal is the fastest way to improve air quality, penalising the latest, cleanest diesels is counterproductive and will have detrimental environmental and economic consequences". Anyone holding out for a confidence boost from the Budget will have been sorely disappointed, as the chancellor's statement only served to further exacerbate the problem. What consumers really need now is clarity'.
