SMMT announces new car finance and sales figures

Sales and car finance figures are down 7.9 percent compared to March 2010, according to the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders. And the news gets even worse when you consider that March is typically the busiest month of the year for traders.

The figures, however, do show that consumers are choosing more eco-minded vehicles, as the emissions of the cars sold were down an average of 3.4 percent to a very green 140.3g/km.

Will the sales pick up in time for the summer, or will the slump continue? Perhaps the industry needs a good kick up the rear end.
