Figures of car sales show by the SMMT Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders, that 162.288 new cars were sold in the month of May. This is a 7.9% increase compared to last May.

The big rise is largely due to the percent increase of people selling their cars privately. This has risen by 14.3%. The notable growth in car sales overall is in the demand for more fuel efficient and economic vehicle such as the hybrid and electric cars.
