June 9, 2014



ENP Newswire - 09 June 2014

Release date- 05062014 - Richard Lowe, Head of Retail & Wholesale at Barclays, comments on today's SMMT figures.

'It's great to see the longest period of growth on record - as well as improved consumer confidence, the two bank holiday weekends will have helped to fuel May's increase, as consumers took advantage of the time off from work to visit car showrooms. Looking ahead over the summer months it will be interesting to see if this holds firm, or whether we will see the growth rate drop down a gear. If there is a slowdown, all eyes will be on manufacturers and the actions they take to try to drive the market forward.'
