Fleet and business registrations in January were almost 5% (4.88%) lower than in the same month last year, according to the latest figures from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT).
True fleet sales were down by 7.2% in 2018, slightly ahead of the 6.8% overall decline in the new car market.
Fleet sales were down more than 7% last year, as the new car market suffered its worst performance in five years.
Fleet sales could spike ahead of the September introduction of new WLTP regulations, says Cap HPI.
