UK car sales up 11%, best May in six years

May 2013 saw the best May for new-car sales in the UK in six years, making it the 15th consecutive month of growth for the market.
Compared to 2012, private demand soared by over 20%.

These figures currently defy the rest of the economy, as they outperform the volume seen pre-recession in 2007.

UK new car registrations could potentially exceed 2 million units, provided sales continue at this pace throughout the next six months.
