The crisis caused by the coronavirus continues to write anti-records, this time in the spotlight was the UK car market.

The volume of sales of new cars in Britain in April fell by 97% (compared with April last year). Last month, only 4,321 cars were registered for the 67 millionth Great Britain, at least since 1946, the first since the end of World War II. At the same time, only 871 vehicles were registered by individuals.

Throughout April, showrooms for the sale of cars in the country were forcibly closed as part of a measure to combat the spread of coronavirus, and the largest share of cars registered in April were delivered on previously concluded deals.

According to the results of this year, the Association of British automakers expects a market decline of 27% – to the lowest level since 1992 of 1.68 million sold cars.
