The number of new cars sold in the UK grew by 14.3% in October 2023, compared with the same month last year.

Official figures from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) revealed that last month was the best October for new car registrations since 2018, and marked the 15th month of consecutive growth. Over the period, 153,529 new cars joined the roads.

The SMMT data highlights the increasing popularity of electric cars. In October, sales of electric vehicles (EVs) grew for the 42nd month in succession, with 23,943 hitting the roads – that’s nearly one in six new car registrations.

In terms of outright sales, EVs outperformed both plug-in hybrids (14,285 new registrations) and hybrids (19,574 registrations).
