Sales of new vehicles increased in the UK

The number of British registrations of new cars increased by about 670 percent in May compared to the same month last year, when showrooms were closed due to locking measures, preliminary data released on Friday showed.

Merchants opened their doors to customers in England on April 12 this year. During May 2020, vehicle showrooms were closed due to a pandemic.

According to the British Society of Engine Manufacturers and Dealers (SMMT), around 156,000 cars were sold to citizens last month, and sales to companies helped further improve performance. The total number of vehicles sold in May 2019 was 183,724.
