Following from last month when car sales showed a 100% improvement compared to the same month last year, the relatively strong performance of new car sales compared to last year continued in May. New car sales were up over 70% on the same month last year. A graph of the details shown in the table below for the last three months is here.
The cumulative sales of new car to May in 2010 of 59,475 is greater than the total of 57,460 sold over the full 12 months of 2009. The figures are still far far short of the levels seen in 2007 and 2008, but it is clear we have moved away from the 2009 lows as the red line below shows.
