March van registrations

March total CV registrations are up 25.3% to 48,756; rolling year up 22.7% to 276,584.

Vans registrations in March saw an increase of 27.0% to 44,074; rolling year up 24.4% to 240,041.

“March delivered continued recovery in van and truck registrations, with heavy vans and artic tractors leading the way,” said Paul Everitt, SMMT chief executive. “Other sectors did well but there are more signs of demand dropping for light and medium vans and trucks as the market polarises, driven by the need for the greater operating efficiency of maximum capacity vehicles.”
