The latest July SMMT new LCV registrations reforecast for 2020 is down 26.3% to 269,000 units for the year. Lockdown has impacted on all UK businesses, with many under financial pressure. This has created an underlying weakness in the market.
Although there is a gradual improvement in demand, the UK is still a long way off normal levels. A second wave of localised lockdowns has not helped this current position and fallout from the pandemic lockdown in March 2020.
There is likely to be more uncertainty ahead as the UK suffers from business nervousness and the possibility of further regional lockdowns.
