UK cars new cars fleet cars

Analysis from Dataforce has shown that UK true fleet registrations have grown significantly slower this year than those of Spain, Germany, France and Italy.

In February, France, Germany, Italy and Spain reached growth rates between 13.7% and 20.5%. The fleet market in the United Kingdom grew by “only” 4.8%, but Dataforce, a pan-European fleet intelligence provider, says that this is still positive considering the extremely high base level.

In the UK, after a flat January the True Fleet Market returned to growth again with + 4.8% over February 2015. Vauxhall remained on top but Ford was able to almost close the gap.

Volkswagen and Nissan stayed in third and fourth position followed by Audi, BMW and Citroen. The French brand increased its fleet registrations by 47.3%.
