I found this earlier, I thought some might be interested:

2012 New Car Sales by Band



Doesn't take a genius to see that the motor tax take is shagged this year. Bands need to be changed aty the bottom end


2012 New/Used 2012 Registrations




There's a significant number of imports versus new registrations. Look at the number of Ford & VW being imported used, I expected Audi & BMW to be up there alright though.

Year on Year Comparison



Searchable Database

Here is a searchable database that you can serch by Make/Model to see how many have been registered in a particular year:

The 'Opel' statistic is interesting - especially when UK inports will be Vauxhall 99% of the time, so these then must be left hand drive cars then?

I think Larry means that the Opel imports should be listed as Vauxhalls. If they were import Opels then they would be left hookers

It looks as if they don't have a consistent policy of recording Vauxhals as Vauxhall, look at the September figures, hardly any Opels imported, loads of Vauxhalls though.
From the year on year figures it looks as if sales of new cars are dropping again, even lower than it was for the same period in 2010. Hopefully that won't mean more job losses :(.

So if I'm reading that correctly, of all the new cars sold in 2012 YTD, 92% of them are in band A or B, and therefore cost <= €225 to tax for the year? And less than 0.1% are in band G (> 225g/CO2) :eek:! And 2/3 of those were diesel too

Best of luck trying to buy something a bit different in a few years time on the used market. Beginning to feel like the Socialist Republic of Ireland here

There'll be 45 cars that we'll all have to fight over in 4-5 years time! (Band G cars sold in 2012 to date!). Although they will probably be €2k to tax per year by then. They'll be nearing the scrap heap (or exported) when they're 6 years old, scary stuff! :eek:

Someone said to me the other day that most of the early Toyota Prius are driving around now solely on engine power. What's worse now is that puny engine also has to carry around the now defunct batteries too! :eek

Environmentally my arse! Drop the Environ from environmental & it would be closer to the truth! :D

You're optimistic Mark, as they're over €2200 to tax at the moment! ;)
