June 2009 UK Lotus sales down 33.82%

evoralotuslogoNew registrations of Lotus cars in the UK for June 2009 were down 33.82% compared to June of the previous year. According to statistics released by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT), the sales dip was twice the industry average of 15.74% for the month.

Lotus UK registrations for the first six months have fallen by 37.75% compared to 2008.

Comments from the SMMT:

The new car market posted its smallest decline since July 2008, at -15.7%, in June. The scrappage scheme will have a positive impact on volumes, although the impact is likely to be lagged. SMMT had expected the market to decline to 153,000 units (as forecast in April), with the actual being 15% higher at 176,264 units.

Registrations to private buyers rose for the first time since November 2007 in June, up 3.9%.

Demand for small cars also picked up, with the mini segment showing growth of 145.4% in the month, while superminis took a record 37.2% share of the market. Ford’s Fiesta was the best selling model for a fifth time this year.

The growth in small car demand contributed to the fall in diesel penetration, with small cars tending to be petrol powered. However, diesel market share is still up over the year-to-date.
