Release date- 07052014 - Richard Lowe, Head of Retail & Wholesale at Barclays, comments on today's SMMT figures.

'The UK car market remains in rude health, as improving consumer confidence and strong finance deals continue to rev the market. The recent news that the Government's Plug-In Car Grant has been extended to 2017 is also welcome news and will encourage sales of electric vehicles - great for the environment and consumers' wallets.'
