John Byrne, Cartell.ie, says:

2015, as we expected, is set to be a year of recovery for the domestic industry as new vehicle sales are already set to pass the total for last year – with more than 5 months remaining. This is good news for the industry. It remains to be seen how sales will fare through the remaining months of the year and whether the dual-registration system, now in its third year, will deliver a spread of sales through the remaining months.”

Colour White drives to the top

Also today Cartell.ie report the colour white is the most popular colour for new vehicle purchases in 2015 (all vehicle types). In a further sign of an improved economic environment the colour white, with recorded sales of 21,871, is ahead of black (21,385) and silver (20,950). The popularity of white may be a further sign of increased economic activity in the commercial sector as white is traditionally a popular colour for company and commercial vehicles.
