‘VAN production is almost back to normal across Europe”, said Sue Robinson, chief executive of the National Franchised Dealers Association (NFDA) commenting on the latest SMMT LCV figures.
The light commercial vehicle market up to 3.5 tonnes grew by 13.3% in October. Demand was strong across all segments. The heavy 2.5-3.5 tonnes sector saw the biggest uplift, up by 26.8% from 16,373 units last year to 20,492 vehicles this October. These commercials are the mainstay of the LCV market representing around 63% registered.
NFDA expects the LCV market to remain stable over the coming weeks.
