Pippa Hudson interviews motoring journalist Ciro de Siena.

New car sales increased by 15.8% (to 43 130) year-on-year in September.

If every month was like that, we’d be almost at 500 000 units. Pre-Covid we were at about 330 000. It does seem like the market is rebounding a lot.

Ciro de Siena, motoring journalist

  • Toyota – 10 936
