High new car sales predicted
According to the latest information from vehicle data experts at Cartell.ie, new vehicle sales look set to blitz those for 2014. With five months left to go in 2015, there have been 118,083 new vehicles registered, just over a thousand less than for the whole of last year. The month of July has already recorded 17,310 new vehicle sales with half the month remaining - well ahead of the totals recorded for April (13,053), May (9,514) and June (2,636).
White remains the most popular new vehicle colour, ahead of black and silver. This may indicate increased economic activity in the commercial sector as white is traditionally a popular colour for company and commercial vehicles.
"2015, as we expected, is set to be a year of recovery for the domestic industry as new vehicle sales are already set to pass the total for last year - with more than five months remaining," said John Byrne of Cartell.ie. "This is good news for the industry. It remains to be seen how sales will fare through the remaining months of the year and whether the dual-registration system, now in its third year, will deliver a spread of sales through the remaining months."
