British New Car Sales Disappoint
UK new car sales fell 5.7%, marking the largest downturn in eight years. This was caused by concerns over possible new diesel charges and lowering consumer confidence, which in turn a was to Brexit. Demand for new diesel cars declined 17.1%. But, according to the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders, average CO2 emissions for new cars increased for the first time in twenty years. Total registrations indicated 2.54M.
