Year-to-date sales reached 282,173 units, an increase of 14% compared to the same period last year.Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders' chief executive Christopher Macgowan said: 'Strong commercial vehicle registrations reflect strong business-based demand and confident investment in the context of a healthy economy.

'November's registrations continued the torrent of very positive growth in the UK's new commercial vehicle market over the year.

'The pace of growth has been unexpected, durable and most welcome. The monthly growth trend has now held firm since March and we are well on target to see the year out on a very high note.'
