Van and truck registrations up 16.4% in 2010

Published to the CV Show website on

Data from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders show that during 2010 van and truck registrations posted an annual growth of 15.9%, "one of the best ever", according to Paul Everitt, SMMT boss.  This came as "volumes started to recover from the recession".  Vans rose in all but one month in 2010, boosted by better than expected business confidence and improved output from the construction sector.  Trucks grew fast in the second half of 2010 and ended the year on par with 2009 levels.  "While we still have a long way to go to get volumes back to pre-recession levels, we expect more growth in 2011 and 2012," he continued.
