New Car Sales In Ireland down 58%



Motorcheck.ie is now publishing the number of vehicles registered for 2009 against those registered in 2008 on its homepage.

While the figure at the moment shows a 58% decline I think it’s being slightly generous. There was an extra day to register cars in 2008 that’s not being included so the real figure is probably more than 60%.

Here’s how the market stands today…
