KPMG respond to SMMT new car registrations data for April:

Richard Peberdy, UK Head of Automotive, KPMG, said:

“As implications of conflict in the Ukraine further complicate supply chain challenges that were already lingering from the pandemic, the impact of a rising cost of living adds further uncertainty for the automotive industry in 2022. 

Yet in the face of weakening consumer spending power and rising fuel and energy costs, car sales demand has remained relatively robust so far this year, compared with the very limited supply.  Spending intention also remains, with a fifth of consumers planning on spending savings in 2022 telling KPMG that they will use them to buy a car.”
