Wessex Garages motors ahead

We have predicted strong sales of the 65 number plate this month (September, 2015) after a successful past six months with new car sales up 13% based on the same period last year.

We’ve seen motorists ordering new vehicles in their droves this year and sales of September registrations look rosy.

Keith Brock, our Managing Director, said: “So far this year we have had a great response from our customers regarding the purchase of new vehicles and predict this to continue in September with the new 65 number plate. Our pre-orders for September are on track and we think new car buyers have never had it so good. There is so much choice as well as discounts and offers to be had. 

“With our new Renault and Dacia dealership now open in Newport we are looking forward to seeing how it will fair in the next six months. We can now offer our customers new vehicles from a range of top brands including Nissan, Fiat, Kia and Hyundai across our six locations.

“We were also pleased to hear the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) recently (July) announced that the Nissan Qashqai is now the fifth most popular car in the UK with more than 38,000 sales year to date.

“It is fantastic to see the Nissan Qashqai doing so well. It is the most popular vehicle at our Nissan dealerships in Cardiff, Bristol and Gloucester.”

The SMMT also saw steady growth in July as 178,420 cars were registered – an uplift of 3.2% on the same month last year – while registrations in 2015 so far have risen 6.5% to surpass 1.5 million.

Keith added: “We have worked hard to stay successful and it is great that it has paid off as these excellent sales figures show. We always put our clients in the driving seat and pride ourselves on being extremely customer-friendly.

“We are now looking forward to expanding the business and increasing our award-winning customer service initiatives.”
