Volume of new passenger cars registered in the UK 2003-2019

In 2019, there were 2.31 million new passenger cars registered in the United Kingdom. This was a slight decrease compared to the previous year, and 14.2 percent lower than the peak reported in 2016.
The purchase of new cars has consistently become more expensive, with the consumer price index reaching 108.1 points in 2018, having grown by nearly 20 points in the past eleven years.

What consumers want of their car

The most important feature British consumers were looking for in their new car was fuel efficiency. According to a 2019 Statista survey, 61 percent of respondents reported this characteristic to be of importance to them when deciding on a new purchase. This was followed by the vehicle’s safety.

Total number of licensed cars

The overall number of licensed cars in Great Britain reached 31.5 million in 2018. The number of cars available in the country had consistently been increasing since the beginning of the reporting period in 2000.
